Black Nicaraguans[edit]

This article is incorrect in that it states Nicaragua has 0% black people. This is not true, about 10% of Nicaragua's population is black, it has the most black people(in terms of numbers not percentages) of any Central American country.

French speaking territories[edit]

Haiti is considered part of Latin America as a French speaking country, but what about Martinique, Guadeloupe and French Guyana? In the page about Anglo-America the British overseas territories are also included. --83.53.62.83 (talk) 22:13, 11 October 2013 (UTC) QUEBECQuebec also should be included in Latin America.--88.1.244.26 (talk) 21:58, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

How about also including the Province of Quebec, because its populations mostly are French-speakers? (In the Anglo-America article the area that Quebec covers is shaded different than any other of that map way not do something similar to the map of Latin America here) -- Sion8 (talk) 00:37, 16 January 2014 (UTC)

When I was growing up in the 1970s, my understanding was that the US State Department formally defined Latin America that part of the New World in which a latin-based language was spoken. This was at the height of Quebec Separatist sentiment, so speculation was that an independent Quebec would be identified as a "Latin American" country by the United States. can anyone here verify this formal use of the term? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 50.21.241.231 (talk) 14:18, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

Population, area, GDP inconsistent[edit]

I noticed that some of the information was inconsistent throughout the article, with different sources (some with estimates from 2011 and some from 2013). I think the article should be consistent and I think the World Bank Data Catalog here is a good source for this. I edited the article to include some of the 2013 estimates by the WB but I'm sure I made a mistake somewhere and I think some of it needs to point to the right ref, could anyone else help me with this?
