Approximately 50.4 percent of all characters in the U.S. realms were members of the Alliance. In the beginning, when a player generates an avatar for himself they need to choose a race.

Supplementary notes
For this analysis, 44.7 million characters on US realms and 41.5 million characters on EU realms were recorded. The data were collected by using Blizzard's Battle.net API.

Realm Pop: "To get the list of characters for a realm, first we record all the characters who posted to the auction house. Then we fetch and record their guild rosters. This should cover the majority of characters on a realm".
