I have never been able to reconcile the numbers. For example, they refer to 50,357 Y records, instead of haplotypes.. What do they define as a record? Is there just one record for each person or 1 record for Y-STR results, another for SNP results and another for MTDNA results.
They don't quote a number for 37-marker haplotypes. Is it the difference between 25 and 12 results and the number above?

Opps! Sorry everyone! I shared erroneous stats, it's much bigger
and better than what I stated. My biggest error was in thinking that
the mtDNA results were part of that 50,000. (I was thinking of
it in terms of kit numbers.)
Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for the corrections!
"Some additional stats: FTDNA hit 50,000 kits yesterday, and nearly 15,000
of those are mtDNA. This is in addition to the estimated 16,000 Genographic
participants who have transferred into FTDNA's database."
The stats are clearly published in the home page:

27293 unique surnames
50357 Y-DNA records in the database (those are just Y-DNA, does not include
14886 distinct 12-marker haplotypes
