The statistics are made by Jost Jahn, Amrum, Germany, mpecs@jostjahn.de.
They will be updated unattended about each 14 days or so.
So if you notice errors, please contact me.
A program downloads all
MPECs
from the MPC website
and saves them, so that only the actual MPECs must be downloaded each update
(to avoid traffic at the MPC).
The program analyzes the MPECs and count them. Because the art of typing the
observer name and especially the names of the measurer, it's difficult to get all of them
from the text. If you miss some name or know, that a name was written in multiple modes,
please contact me. The names of the measurers has not been well extracted from
the MPECs, I work at the problem.
The histograms were made using Gnuplot,
so they will be also made unattended. The last year of the dataset is no extrapolation, so
you can forget it.
A set of different statistic tables:
 All used MPECs
 MPECs number per halfmonth
 MPECs number per year
 Discovery MPECs numbers per halfmonth
 Discovery MPECs number per year
 MPECs observations per halfmonth
 MPECs observations per year
 Station codes, sorted by number of all MPECs
 Station codes, sorted by number of discovery MPECs
 Station codes, sorted by number of observations
 Station codes, sorted by name
 Station codes, sorted by number of all MPECs and normalized to all MPECS.
 Station codes, sorted by number of discovery MPECs and normalized to all disocvery MPECS
 Station codes, sorted by number of observations and normalized to all MPECS
 Measurers, sorted by number of MPECs
 Measurers, sorted by name
 Observers, sorted by number of MPECs
 Observers, sorted by name
 MPEC statistics for all MPECs
 MPEC statistics for all discovery MPECs
Beside the name problem there are some more inconsistences in the tables:
 Some users asked to mark the "discovery" MPECs. I do this in one list above. A MPEC with a
discovery have an asterisk at column 13 in the observation block(s). Sometimes this happens also in
DAILY UPDATES or so. There may be some (but only a few) MPECs counted as "discovery" MPEC, which are
only daily MPECs or so.
 If there is no measurer given, the observer will not be taken as measurer.

You can change the amount and the currency.
Also smaller amounts are a support for my activities here and in the future.
Because English isn't my mother tongue, there maybe some errors in the text.
But I think, this is better for the most readers, as learning German...
