Back in January 2017, I posted to my website a tool that allowed you to compare the relative cost of collecting various countries.
I recently updated the tables to reflect 2018/2019 Michel catalog data.
In addition, I added a couple new features.
First, I added the ability to filter by date range. The dates used are those that Michel assigns to the set, not the individual stamps.
Second, I changed the IA filter to a multi-select box. This allows you to select multiple areas for comparison.
Note: The multi-select box can take a few seconds to load due to the number of entries, so be patient!
An overview of the project, its methodology, and its limitations can be found here.
A few items to highlight, however:
Michel doesn't update its Worldwide catalogs on an annual basis. Rather, they're generally done on a rolling 2- to 3-year schedule, with certain areas (particularly in Europe) updated more frequently. Because of this, despite the data being pulled from the 2018/2019 version of the electronic catalog, some areas are only current through 2017, while others are current through mid-2019.
With the 2018/2019 update, the Germany data is from Michel's basic, non-specialized Germany catalog. It is, however, still far more specialized than other areas, so use caution with comparing non-German areas to German ones.
Finally, this will be the last update to this data, as Michel has discontinued the electronic catalog that I used to assemble the data.
