As of January 7, 2013, there were 2,740 potential planets discovered in the Kepler data. Of these potential exoplanets, 1,290 (47%) are the size of Neptune. The number of potential Earth-size planets discovered increased the most of any size planet since the previous data from 2009-2011 was evaluated, increasing by 43% to 351 planets.
