Some interesting statistics about chess countries here (comparing 2008 and 2012):

Top 20 (roughly) for:

Number of internationally rated players

Increase in the number of rated players

Average ratings of the rated players

Titled players

England only appears in one of those lists. Guess which one. Anyone know the numbers for England for the other three?

PS. Extra-special bonus points for working out why the number of GMs England has has remained the same at 35 between 2008 and 2012 (yes, this is a trick question of sorts).
