Census Data From Middle Earth

October 14, 2012 in Daily Bulletin

Emil Johansson has gone through all of J.R.R. Tolkien’s works to find some interesting statistics about the characters from Middle Earth that Tolkein describes:

  • Humans have the largest population followed by Hobbits, Elves and Dwarves.
  • Only 19% of the total characters are female. There is only one female dwarf.
  • At 589 years, Gollum had the longest lifespan among all Hobbits.
  • Samwise Gamgee and Rose Cotton had 13 children – a record for Hobbits.

Check out the rest of the fascinating statistics over here.
