We often get asked how many users eduGAIN has.  eduGAIN has been designed specifically to not be able to answer this question. In order to conserve the privacy of users as much as possible, eduGAIN does not aggregate usage data centrally.  A trial is underway to look at how statistics can be maintained in a privacy-preserving way (see, but until that time the following Guesstimates may be of interest. Please note these extrapolations are not necessarily from completely reliable sources (we googled!) and the way the precentages are applied is very crude.  If you are a Federation Operator and can add more accurate data - please go ahead and add!
