Taking stock, December edition

A couple of milestones were reached in the previous month: the 500th entry was finalized, the 8,000th citation was confirmed, and the DMNES joined Twitter. And there’s lots to look forward to over the next month, as the coding for the website gets going in earnest.
We start December with 528 entries finalized and ready for inclusion in the first edition (up from 460 last month, a 15% increase). 331 are masculine and 197 are feminine. There are 8122 citations, representing a 16% increase from last month (7006), with the average number of citations per entry still hovering just over 15. 4306 are from Latin-language records, just over 53% (slightly more than last month).
And now to the charts!
citations per country
Since last month, Scotland has jumped ahead of Sweden, in part because I’ve been working through some 14th C charters from Lennox, and in the process learning all about the Mormaers of Scotland!
