Perhaps add "And how do I find it out myself?", if he knows how to do it it wouldn't be necessary to ask this. Importing the planet in psql is kind of non trivial, so other solutions?

This is something that will be changing all the time, and will also depend on what sort of roads you want to include.

People have occasionally done various estimates and published them but at the end of the day the best answer is to take the data (it's open after all) and calculate the answer according to whatever criteria you have.

This stats are too old. Someone should update these. I think one missing things in OSM is statistics visualization: - how number of user we have per time - what are the number of edits per user? and by procedence of user? - what number of edits we have of region before and after a map party? - number of cities, number of countries, etc mapped ...

Definitively, we have to improve that. Anyone? ;-)

i think so too, but this may not be the best platform for this discussion. the developers reading mostly the mailing list. except that, the discussion wouldn't bee found because it is at a unrelated question
