The Americas

The Americas (or chiefly historically, America) are lands in the Western hemisphere, also known as the New World.

In the English language, the Americas refer to the landmasses of North America and South America with their associated islands and regions, while America refers almost exclusively to the United States of America.

The Americas cover 8.3% of the Earth’s total surface area (28.4% of its land area) and contain about 13.5% of the human population (about 900 million people). (Wikipedia)
