Summary for North America: state/province

The table below shows the distribution of all types of tower bell instruments in North America by state or province.  The column headed "Total" shows the combined number of instruments in each state or province.  The next three columns show the corresponding numbers of traditional carillons (excluding the two traveling carillons), non-traditional carillons and chimes.  At the far right, the column headed "TNr" is intended to show the total number of bells in these instruments, but those figures have not yet been compiled.  Additional explanation can be found below the table.

TOTAL        993  =  179   + 122   + 692                              ?

S/P TOTALS:   58      40      36      54
Exclusively:           1       2      10

In this table, a period (.) is used instead of a zero (0) as a place-holder for better readability.

Below the table, the row labeled "S/P TOTALS" shows how many states and provinces have entries in the columns above.  The row labeled "Exclusively" shows how many states or provinces have instruments of ONLY that one type.

For example, there are 40 states/provinces which have traditional carillons but only one of those has no instruments of other types.

Other facts:

Average number of instruments per state:   17.1
