It depends on the context. It is 100% comprehensive in its coverage of
widely implemented CJK encoding standards (e.g., JIS X 0208, JIS X 0212, GB2312,
BIG5, KS C 5601). In contrast, its coverage is far from complete, say, in
terms of covering Chu+~ No>m Characters.

I'm not aware of any attempts to produce such statistics. It sounds like
a good research project.
