Thank you for these stats.
Numbers always cause more questions.

I'm understanding the term /24s here to be a gauge of quantity,
I think that most of the /24s were in fact given out in the form of /22s and
/21s and /20s...?

Is it easy to understand how many of the new-entrants asked for IPv6 space?
What is the distribution of allocation sizes new-entrants?
How did they qualify?   I would assume most had demonstrated exhaustion of
PA space they got from their upstream.

After a new-entrant returns their PA space upstream, does ARIN have any
statistics (from delegation records) on what happens to that address space
afterwards?  Does upstream ISP deploy it to new customers? How fast?
Or does upstream ISP tend to use it for internal uses?  Do upstream ISPs keep
it quiet for a cool-down period?
