< Full country/territory list

Each country may have multiple reference data files, which will serve different processes in the cleanse product.

vfy = provides only the verification data for the country
geo = serves the geocode data for the country (also provides verification data where vfy files are not available/used)
pnt = will contain point-level/rooftop geocode data, typically used in addition to vfy and/or geo files, but may also provide the verification data
ggg = means the country has completed the Loqate country improvement process (PDH) and both geo and pnt are now combined and optimized.

Please note that the Record Count and Geocode Count values can be misleading, as our datasets will typically use ranged, rolled up, or interpolated premise and building data.
