This page is automatically updated at least once a day with the raw data behind Kickstarter. Metrics include funding success rates, amount pledged, and the performance of successfully and unsuccessfully funded projects. Statistics are available for the site overall as well as each of the 13 project categories. Check out our blog for more on Kickstarter’s data.

Projects and Dollars
Successfully Funded Projects

Most successfully funded projects raise less than $10,000, but a growing number have reached six and even seven figures. Currently funding projects that have reached their goals are not included in this chart — only projects whose funding is complete.

Unsuccessfully Funded Projects

Funding on Kickstarter is all-or-nothing in more ways than one. While 10% of projects finished having never received a single pledge, 80% of projects that raised more than 20% of their goal were successfully funded.

For these metrics, pledges not made in US dollars are converted using the exchange rate in effect when the project was live.
