Why do you use millibars as a unit of measure and barometric pressure is measured with something else?

ANSWER:

It is the international standard; inches are only used in public NWS products; the remainder of the world (except for former Soviet countries) uses millibars, which has now been converted to hectopaschals; the former Soviet countries use millimeters, which medical products in the United States also use. Millibar is the most widely used measure, and is standard on all maps and discussion products.
