SQL Tips – List of Countries (2018 revision)

Over nine years ago, I published a SQL and tab delimited list of countries sourced from Wikipedia and ISO. After numerous comments about it being out of date, here is an updated version…..

The data was sourced from Wikipedia and ISO.

This data is correct as of 29 April 2018.

Note that some countries have single quotes in their names, these need to be escaped for SQL. The SQL below is escaped, but the tab delimited version is not.

Please post a comment if you find this useful.
