(1) This category is comprised of insurers designated by the NAIC as a "foreign insurer"--i.e., an insurer whose state of domicile is other than the state in which it is writing business. This is distinct from an "alien" insurer, which is incorporated according to the requirements of a country other than the United States. There is no total in this column to avoid double counting--i.e., insurers are only included in the figures for states in which they are domiciled.
(2)Includes U.S. possessions and territories.
