There may not be exact figures, since not every country has a governmental agency which keeps tabs on how many stations are operating. In some countries, pirate and unlicensed stations are common, and in other countries, due to the economy and lack of money to operate on a regular basis, stations come and go; also, dictators shut down the station entirely. In 2005, the CIA Factbook reported that there were 44,000 stations in the world, but that figure may be an estimate, and the number may have changed since then. Here are some recent facts that we do know: As of 2012, there are, according to the Federal Communications Commission, 15,200 US radio stations, and the Canadian government reports 675 radio stations.

Some sources say England has 305 stations operating. But in other parts of the United Kingdom, there are far fewer stations: most residents of Wales rely on broadcasts from the BBC, for example; but some sources say Scotland has as many as 30 local stations in addition to the BBC. Many countries, like India, have a national radio service, and also local or regional stations-- some sources say India has more than 350 stations currently operating. In some third-world countries, there might be a handful of stations for the entire country, while in others, radio is the preferred medium due to a lack of infrastructure to wire the country for the internet.
