On the Peace Corps' Open Government Initiative website there are links at the bottom to .csv files, including one for "2009 Peace Corps Volunteer on board strength - by post and sector" (also available here). This page uses that data in its computations of volunteer placements.
DATA AS OF 2009

  • Select a region and sector to see the number, and percentage, of volunteers within that region with that job sector
  • Example: In 2009 there were 383 'Education' volunteers in 'Asia', of which 110 of them (29%) were in China
  • This can also be used as a GUIDE to where future Applicants may be placed, some notes:
    • Applicants can use the Timeline page to compare countries listed with dates of departure
    • Countries can be deleted from the list if they do not belong to some personal criteria under study. This can be done by clicking the button to the left of the country. All percentages and totals automatically change.
    • Pro: Data is based an actual distribution of volunteers in 2009
    • Con: Some countries listed may have been suspended or evacuated; while other countries may be new to Peace Corps and are not yet reflected in the data
