Internet-Draft and RFC statistics


Please Note: The author information in the datatracker about RFCs with numbers lower than about 1300 and Internet-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) 17.91% 888
Africa 0.40% 20
Asia 13.97% 693
Europe 27.12% 1345
North America 59.35% 2943
Oceania 1.51% 75
South America 0.42% 21

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