Generally, the floors of a building are numbered sequentially, from one or ground upwards. However, in some countries, including the United States and Canada, buildings will sometimes purposely omit the thirteenth floor, because in these countries, 13 is considered an unlucky number. Even landlords who are not themselves superstitious realize that the rentability of suites on the 13th floor might be compromised because of superstitious tenants, or tenants who are afraid their own customers might be superstitious.
