====Region dimension====
The region dimension includes most modern countries. For China, there are "official" and "alternative" versions. For regional aggregates spreadsheets, a "Country / Region" is given, usually with a broader region than just a country (e.g. "Latin America", "Middle East & North Africa", "Europe", "{{W|EU-15}}", "OECD").
====Other information====
At least one spreadsheet uses italics, but I forgot which one and for what meaning.
