This table gives the numbers of listed sites, grouped by countries and category. The subtotals per country and category are given too. The total number of sites listed on this website is given at the bottom right.

Some countries have only a few entries, so those countries are managed in a section called Other Countries. In this table they have a bright grey background. Countries with a certain amount of underground sites (about 10) get their own section or chapter, which includes additional pages like some country background, geology and the translation of important caving terms. In this table they have a dark grey background.
