The construction does not show a Canadian frequency dimension other than a trend in Charts 1 & 2, which, however, confirms a South African predominance for write an exam, which was pointed out in COD-2. With this construction, .ca domains feature about twice the frequency of the US domains. Charts 3 & 4 do not confirm the statement found in COD-2 about a Canadian status. COD-2, s.v.
