Websites by Area Code/Geographic Region
December 1st, 2002

The Website Distribution by Telephone Area Code Report details how sites are distributed based on the telephone numbers our crawlers find published on these sites. It is limited to sites with phone numbers matching the North American Numbering Plan (NANP), consisting of the format AAA-XXX-NNNN e.g, 1-800-799-4831 and (905) 304-6922.

The Geographic Region report presents a similar view, but with information keyed by geographic region (states, provinces, Carribean nations).

The last section details the penetration rate of various toll free and pay-per-call numbers.
