XHIP counts

So, my census results for the XHIP catalog, for a 100 parsec wide cube centered on Sirius.

In the cube: 10,117 stars (plus sol, not in the file)
  • 811 of those are multiple star systems, but not variable stars
  • 3835 are listed is variable, but do not list components
  • 2101 are both variable and multiple - of course, that may include eclipsing binaries.
There are 50,760 stars more outside the cube, and additionally 57,078 with no distance information.
