As previously reported, according to data provided via the Oxford Internet Institute, University of Oxford, England (UK) -- see: Domain Mondo | domainmondo.com: Domain Name Registrations and the Global Internet Population -- 78% of all TLD (gTLDs + ccTLDs) domain name registrations in the world are in Europe and North America. Fewer TLD domain names are registered in China than the UK even though China's internet user population is 10 times that of the UK. A nation’s ranked position by GNI per capita explains about 50% of the variance in its ranking by number of domain names per Internet user, followed by level of internet censorship.

The GNI per capita is the dollar value of a country’s final income in a year, divided by its population. It reflects the average income of a country’s citizens. Knowing a country’s GNI per capita is a good first step toward understanding the country’s economic strengths and needs, as well as the general standard of living enjoyed by the average citizen. A country’s GNI per capita tends to be closely linked with other indicators that measure the social, economic, and environmental well-being of the country and its people. For example, generally people living in countries with higher GNI per capita tend to have longer life expectancies, higher literacy rates, better access to safe water, and lower infant mortality rates.
