2019 Q1 Global and Regional Report

Today we’re breaking down data from Q1 of 2019 in the Discogs Database and Discogs Marketplace. This time around though, we decided to dig a little deeper than usual. In addition to looking at global trends, we identified a handful of countries and gathered data on three region-specific categories: most expensive items sold (all listed in US dollars), best selling release variants, and top contributors (based on the release country of submissions).

This new level of granularity elucidated some interesting tidbits. For instance, it looks like the US loves expensive 7″ singles, Denmark has a serious thing for homegrown collective Nobody Beats The Beats, and Mexico spends more on CD singles than most other countries.

Below you’ll find global data for most collected new and catalog releases, most expensive items sold, best selling release variants, and top contributors by rank points, all followed by the regional breakdowns.
