Maybe some can remember that I produced some statistics on per country address counts end of March this year. I’ve rerun the scripts twice since then see http://qa.poole.ch/addresses/ .
What is naturally interesting is not so much the absolute number of addresses we have in the database (we know that we are just at the beginning of collecting addresses), but how fast are we adding them.
The full numbers can be seen on the website linked above, but for a quick comparison here are the overall numbers, Germany and the USA (which has had some address imports lately).
2013-03-27 2013-05-03 2013-07-13 Increase since March Total 20'168'470 21'072'447 22'939'124 13.74% Germany 3'659'043 3'836'410 4'144'198 13.26% USA 2'090'893 2'122'662 2'277'269 8.91%
While obviously the numbers are still quite small (the number for Germany is roughly 10% of all addresses there) I believe it is encouraging that we are adding substantial amounts even without large scale imports and do not depend solely on addresses becoming available as open data (which will not happen everywhere).
