Historical Data available for 67 countries: see if you can help!
* See All Historical Data for 67 countries by clicking on the title! *
With so many new readers coming on the site every day I thought a quick heads-up about Historical Data would be useful. 66 countries are now available on the site! Highlights are Germany for each year since 1946, France for each year since 1949, the UK for each year since 1965, Brazil since 1954 and Norway since 1956. Given all my posts are ordered chronologically, the older the data, the further down the list it appears. I am working on an easier way to get to Historical Data here but for now the simplest way for you to check it out is either to:
- Click on the title of this post, scroll down below the fold and click on the country link to access all Historical Data for that country.
- Click on the country you want on the right hand side of the page, scroll down, click on ‘older entries’ and enjoy!
- Scroll down until you find dates on the right hand side of the page, click on the year you want and enjoy!
I am still updating the site as I receive more Historical Data and the next batch will cover France thanks to the amazing work of STAC!
In the meantime, there are still a lot of patchy Historical Data areas and this is where you come in! Have a look below the jump at all missing periods and see whether you can help by sharing data you have that is not yet on the site… The most blatant needs are for the USA between 1928 and 1973 and 1987-1991, France for 1950-1957 and 1971-1978, Australia before 1996, Russia+China+India before 2002 and Japan before 1998…
If you can help, just comment on here and I will contact you via email.
Many of you have helped in this long-term process by sharing your own data so I want to thank you all very much for it! In particular I would like to thank Florian for German data since 1946, UK data since 1965 and the Interautonews tip, Bruno for Argentina data since 1965, Adam+DC for 70s/80s US data, myk for Philippines data since 1995, STAC for France data since 1949, Marcelo for the tip to Brazil data since 1962, Ryan P for UK data since 1974, Andrea+Cristiana for Italy data since 1956, Bill for Greece info since 1970 and Vavon+Andrea for the tip to Netherlands data since 1982. Please forgive me if I have forgotten you.

Thank you all very much in advance for your help!
Note: you may see sometimes the data I need is more recent than what I indicate I already have. For example for Russia I say I have uploaded Historical Info since 1970 but I need detailed data for any year before 2002. This means that for some countries (also for Romania, Sweden, Czechoslovakia…) I have estimated the best-seller throughout the years but I don’t have any official data. If you do please get in touch!
