ISO 3166-1 numeric

From Academic Kids

ISO 3166-1 numeric-3 is a set of 3-digit codes to represent the names of countries and dependent areas.

It is published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) as part of its ISO 3166 standard and uses the 3-digit country codes developed and maintained by the United Nations Statistics Division. New numeric-3 codes reflect changes in country boundaries not country names.

A major advantage of numeric-3 codes over the ISO 3166 letter-based codes is script (writing system) independence.

Script (writing system) independence

The letter-based codes used in ISO 3166 rely on Latin alphabet characters found in English and western European languages.

For people and systems using non-Latin scripts (writing systems) – e.g. Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, Cyrillic, Devangari, Greek, Hangul, Japanese – Latin alphabet characters may be unavailable or difficult to use, understand or correctly interpret.

Numeric-based codes overcome these problems of script dependence.
