Do you mean which proportion of pilgrims arriving in Santiago get a Compostela? It is an unknown quantity. Perhaps someone remembers earlier estimates of the percentages?
As to those who do get a Compostela, there's been a clear uptick in numbers since the 22nd of July, approaching the fiesta weekend. Daily Compostelas were above 1,000 while these daily numbers had been in the 600-700 range before that date. The numbers for the weekend add up to over 5,000 assuming that these pilgrims stayed in Santiago for the festivities. More than at other times of the year, in July and August the percentage and total number of Spanish pilgrims are high and they tend to go on a 1- to 2-week Camino pilgrimage that is timed to end on the weekend in Santiago. You must have been right in the centre of it all. Wonderful! ☺️
