Thank you for your suggestion, numbered 2015.6, regarding the availability of transfer statistics on the ARIN FTP site.

Internet number resources that are transferred do currently appear in the FTP statistics, but there is nothing that distinguishes regular assignments and allocations from those that involved a transfer. This is a change that we can make. ARIN staff believe that this suggestion would provide data beneficial to the global Internet community. The optimal solution would be to coordinate similar transfer related changes to the extended statistics across all Regional Internet Registries. Thus similar transfer statistics would be available in all regions. Since this approach involves work in coordination with other registries, we do not have an implementation date but will target making the transfer statistics available on the ARIN site as soon as possible.

Thank you for participating in the ARIN Suggestion and Consultation Process. We will keep this suggestion open until it has been implemented.
