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.

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%.

In case no country information is found for an author in the time period, the author is counted as (unknown).

EU (European Union) is not a country, but has been added for reference, as the sum of all current EU member countries: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom.

Country Aliases

In generating the above statistics, some heuristics have been applied to figure out which country each author is from.
