Here are the more interesting Brexit statistics, facts and history I was able to dig up recently. As always, I will be adding more and updating these periodically as I find new stuff. Be sure to check back regularly.
Please note that some of these Brexit statistics are easier to find than others, so some of these are based on news reports and not official government tallies. All stats are linked to their source. No stat listed on DMR should be considered in making any type of investment decision. In other words: This is the best I can find, but I don't guarantee anything.
