We're working on this question at the operator (ASN) level for a couple of projects. I can't produce a list immediately, but there seem to be at least 600-700 ASNs that were consistently routed between Oct 01 and Oct 03 that have no easily matchable whois data in any registry.On Thu, 28 Oct 2004 13:12:39 EDT, Joe Abley said:For bonus points, does anybody have a good estimate of what percentagePoke around the ftp sites of the four RIRs until you find address registration data.

Probably the best you can come up with the the converse; the percentage of operators who take the (varied kinds of) trouble to identify themselves broadly to the community, thereby making themselves at least implicitly available for large-scale event management, etc. I think if you sum up the unique users of various extra-whois tools (nsp-sec, INOC-DBA, Jared's NOC list, etc.), you come up something like 3-4k operators. For those 3000+/- you can be reasonably confident that their whois data is correct; the other 15.5k actively routed ASNs (much less the routed netblocks, and less still the idled ASNs and netblocks) are anyone's guess...
