This table gives the total number of known transiting planetary systems, split into well-studied planets, little-studied planets, and brown dwarfs.

The objects are subdivided according to the consortium which discovered them, based primarily on the names of the planets.

Any planet whose name begins with "OGLE" will be attributed to the OGLE consortium, although several groups participated in this work. Similarly, any planet with a name beginning "Kepler", "KIC" or "KOI" is assigned to the Kepler satellite.
