Notes:

    The 2000 Mexico arrival figure is still preliminary which makes the total arrivals figure preliminary.
    Only countries with more than 1,000 arrivals in 2000 are shown on this chart.
  1. The total 2000 Mexico figure is revised annually. Canada figures are revised monthly. Both figures are based on survey research and therefore are rounded to the nearest thousand. Four 2000, the Mexico figure is still a preliminary estimate.

  2. Arrivals are a combined total for People's Republic of China and Hong Kong.
  3. Arrivals from People's Republic of China only.
  4. Aruba arrival figures merged with the Netherlands Antilles in 1998.
  5. North America includes Canada and Mexico only.
