To my knowledge the data we have about prevalence of encoding on the web is
accurate. We crawl all pages we can get our hands on, by starting at some
set of seeds and then following all the links. You cannot be sure that
you've reached all web sites as there might be cliques in the web graph but
we try our best to get them all. You're unlikely to get a better estimate
anywhere else. I doubt few organizations have the machinery required to
crawl most of the web.
