    Statistics September 2017

    At mid-September it did not look like this year would eclipse the record set last year for September, but numbers have stayed high while they began to decline toward the end of the month in 2016, so I think that 2017 will beat 2016 by a few hundred, and set a new record. It will be more than...

    Statistics - July 2017

    It was a record-setting July. The increase was about 4.4% over 2016. The rolling 12-month increase is under 1%, which is typical (the rolling increase smooths each month's effect). There is no reason to think that the rest of the year will not set records. The male/female split is now 50% after...

    When to go, when not to go...

    ... that's often the question! :) Here's the number per month of all the pilgrims who went to the pilgrims's office in SJPdP in 2015. (stats form the pilgrim's office) It means the pilgrims who started there as well as the ones who arrived there. The real numbers may be a little higher...

    Pilgrim statistics June and July 2016

    The number of pilgrims in June 2016 was 3,155 more than last year, and 5,322 more than the Holy Year in 2010. If the two-day average for July holds, July will be about 5,000 more than last year and about 7,000 more than the Holy Year. I suggest adjusting bed-finding strategies accordingly! :)

Bar chart showing highest number threads + messages for top 23 attached. Del Norte and Le Puy an eye-opener...

    250,000 pilgrims in the year 2015

    Time for some wild ass guess (wag) predictions for the new year! Due to demographic, social and economics reasons, 2015 will be the year that over 250,000 pilgrims (and as many as 275,000) will arrive into Santiago and receive their Compostela. During the peak season from mid April through to...
