Best Answer

Every country in the world has adopted the Metric System except for Liberia, Myanmar and the U.S.A.

A number of countries, including Canada and the United Kingdom, use Imperial for some things. For instance, Canada measures human heights and cooking ingredients using Imperial measure. Britain measures human weight in stone (which is even more antiquated than the American standards of measurement) and road distances in miles.

Which countries are using miles?

Miles are a part of the Imperial System (or US customary system). The only countries to use this system is the United States, however, Liberia is also considered to use this form of measurement. You will find Liberia listed as a Metric Nation and as an Imperial Nation (in form of measurement systems); this is because Liberia does not have an official system of measurements. Liberia tends to use the Metric System in forms of international trade and business, but will tend to use the Imperial System in forms of internal usage. The United States is also a Metric/Imperial Nation, however, it is more Imperial than Metric and you will probably never list it as a Metric Nation alone. Myanmar (Burma) also does not use the Metric System, however, they do not use the Imperial System; they have their own system of measurement known as the Burmese System. However, there are still many Metric Nations that still use forms of the Imperial System. For example, the United Kingdom, Canada, Ireland, Australia, the Bahamas, India, and Malaysia still use some forms of the Imperial System, but are official Metric Nations. Many other countries fall under this category as well, mainly countries that were at one time a part of the British Empire (as the Imperial System was made by the British Empire).
