Please note: as with all of my stats posts, I rely on third party news and information sites for my data. The posts are aimed at aggregating the data I find most interesting and all stats are linked to their source. In other words, I strive for accuracy, but don’t guarantee anything.

Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. Most of these fun facts come from internet reports and may not be official tallies. No information contained on DMR should be relied upon to make investment decisions. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100%.
