    As Philomel implies - please tell us if you mean 'The USA' when you write 'America'. 

    There are 35 countries in North and South America and the Caribbean, most of which have internal divisions which could be called 'states'.

    Note to Philomel - Australia has states, and territories.  Other parts of the world have divisions which might be called the equivalent of 'states' in the languages used in those countries. Germany certainly has, according to the 'Times' world atlas.

    There are 83 states in America. 50 in the USA plus Wash. DC and 31 in Mexico plus Mexico city which is not  a state but a capital.

    I don't think any of the other countries call their districts "States".

    Canada calls theirs Provinces.

    It would help to answer your question is it were more precise. You do not say whether you mean a continent, North America or South America, or the country, the United States of America. Further, state can mean a country, e.g. Canada is a state. Alternatively, state can be an administrative division of a country, e.g. Nayarit is a state in the United Mexican States (commonly known as Mexico).

    In North America there are three states. The continent have South America has 23 states. In the USA the are 50 states.

    "America" is one of two continents.  The North has 23 countries, the south has 12.  There are no states.

    The country of the United States, part of North America, has 50 states, several territories.  There have been proposals to create more states.  Some from dividing states, or forming a new state from areas of other states, or accepting Puerto Rico.
