In other years the pilgims office in Santiago actualised the numbers of pilgrims with a delay of only more or less 30 days.
But this year they have not actualised their stats since July 2008.
See here. What has happended?

Here is the answer:
Estimado Sr. Bruestle:
En breve publicaremos los datos de todo el año 2008. En estos momentos estamos procesando los datos y revisando que todo esté correcto.

Dear Mr Bruestle:
In short time we will publish the statistic for the whole year 2008. We are in progress to check the mumbers to be sure they are correct.
