Draft/RFC statistics

Please Note: The author information in the datatracker about RFCs with numbers lower than about 1300 and drafts from before 2001 is unreliable and in many cases absent. For this reason, statistics on these pages does not show correct author stats for corpus selections that involve such documents.

Data

Continent Percentage of authors Authors
(unknown) 29.11% 1148
Africa 0.41% 16
Asia 29.79% 1175
Europe 31.14% 1228
North America 38.64% 1524
Oceania 1.04% 41
South America 0.86% 34

The statistics are based entirely on the author addresses provided with each draft. Since this varies across documents, a travelling author may be counted in more than country, making the total sum more than 100%.
