Latin America

Latin America is a subregion of the Americas which comprises those countries in which Romance languages are spoken by the majority of the population (thus not considering Canada). Latin America has an area of approximately 19,197,000 km2 (7,412,000 sq mi), almost 3.7% of the Earth's surface or 12.9% of its land surface area. As of 2013, its population was estimated at more than 604 million and its combined GDP at 5.16 trillion United States dollars (6.27 trillion at PPP). According to Phelan (1968, p. 296), the term "Latin America" was first used in 1861 in La revue des races Latines, a magazine "dedicated to the cause of Pan-Latinism".
