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) 29.96% 3364
Africa 0.47% 53
Asia 26.12% 2933
Europe 27.40% 3077
North America 47.40% 5323
Oceania 1.39% 156
South America 0.62% 70

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%.
