* Effective, January 31, 2010, we changed the methodology for presenting our unit counts to be consistent with the financial statements.  Therefore, as with all prior reports, the U.S. unit counts continue to be reported based on a January 31 year end, International unit counts are presented based on a December 31 year-end.  In this report, except for Canada, International unit counts are presented as of July 31; Canada is presented as of August 31. Effective February 2010, Puerto Rico is reported as part of Walmart U.S. and Sam's Club and is no longer reported with the International unit counts.  Walmart International now includes 43 Wakana units, which have been owned by Walmart but previously excluded.  They are take-out restaurants generally less than 1,000 square feet in size.  China includes a 35% interest in Trust-Mart, which operates 104 stores in China.
