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.


Continent Percentage of authors Authors
(unknown) 29.72% 3162
Africa 0.35% 37
Asia 24.86% 2645
Europe 27.39% 2914
North America 48.72% 5183
Oceania 1.33% 141
South America 0.65% 69

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%.
