**Noncomposite numbers** are numbers that are not composite numbers. Among the integers, this means zero, the units 1 and –1, and the prime numbers.

Positive noncomposite numbers are listed in A008578, prime numbers at the beginning of the 20th century (today 1, a unit, is no longer regarded as a prime.)

- {1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 53, 59, 61, 67, 71, 73, 79, 83, 89, 97, 101, 103, 107, 109, 113, 127, 131, 137, 139, 149, 151, 157, 163, 167, ...}

Nonnegative noncomposite numbers: 0, the unit 1 and the primes are in A158611:

- {0, 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 53, 59, 61, 67, 71, 73, 79, 83, 89, 97, 101, 103, 107, 109, 113, 127, 131, 137, 139, 149, 151, 157, 163, 167, ...}
