Does the time spent in Puerto Rico counted for naturalization?

Are the five years required to obtain U.S. citizenship counted if an EB-5 investor spends them in Puerto Rico after obtaining a green card?

    Puerto Rico is part of the United States. Residence in Puerto Rico counts for naturalization purposes.
