The stats from Santiago are from http://www.archicompostela.org
When the page opens,click on the colourful shell 'Acogida de Peregrinos"
The next page has Spanish, French, German, Italian and English flags.
For up-to-date stats, click on the Spanish Flag first. Then click on Estadisticas (They always post in Spanish first and then a few weeks later onto the other sites). All the stats will be there.

For stats from St Jean go to http://www.aucoeurduchemin.org/ and click on the flashing shell. Then on STAT.PELERINS on the right hand side.

Abrazos,
