Supplementary notes

For this analysis, 13.79 million characters on US realms and 13.21 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".
The totals differ from hundred percent most likely due to rounding off of individual components.
