The tricky bit of course is that those percentages are "of the people 
who voted".

Taginfo reckons objects with the key "shop" were last edited by 105‚ÄČ030 
different users, and there are 1,976,690 shops, of which 20,851 are 
jewelry and 215 jewellery, which suggests (finger in the air) around 
1100 individual mappers last edited a jewellery shop. Taking that as the 
base, the "approval rate" of a little under 4%, based on a "voter 
turnout" or a little under 6%*.

It's pretty difficult to extrapolate any sort of "approval" or 
"rejection" based on those numbers.



* 6% is actually an overestimate of course - it's a guess at the "last 
edited" rather than the "have ever edited" figure.  It'd be interesting 
to know if anyone's got any stats on the latter (not necessarily for 
jewellery shops) - presumably that'd need a full history planet (or an 
extract of one) to do the analysis?
