HEC: Exoplanet Statistics

Last Update: April 17, 2014

This page has statistics for all known confirmed exoplanets and NASA Kepler candidates. The current number of potential habitable exoplanets and predicted exomoons are shown in red. More details of these objects are available in the main page of the Habitable Exoplanet Catalog (HEC) or the PHL's Exoplanet Database.

Currently Known Exoplanets

Here is a list on the number of confirmed and unconfirmed exoplanets according to the main exoplanet databases in the world. Not all of them list the same number of objects or data depending on their criteria and scope. The PHL' Exoplanets Catalog mirrors the Extrasolar Planet Encyclopedia with many correction and additions from other databases.
