The #1 1969-2012 list inspired me to do this.
Luckily I have all my albums in a Word document, so I was able to search on each year to get my count.

1959 - 2
1963 - 2
1964 - 2
1965 - 4
1966 - 5
1967 - 5
1968 - 9
1969 - 18
1970 - 23
1971 - 15
1972 - 27
1973 - 26
1974 - 19
1975 - 26
1976 - 22
1977 - 19

1984 - 16
1985 - 12
1986 - 15
1987 - 14
1988 - 16
1989 - 21

2009 - 39
2010 - 47
2011 - 73
2012 - 79
2013 - 7
total- 1017
It's fairly obvious that I discovered Prog Archives in 2011!  Tongue

Oh, I should note this is my entire collection; not just prog.  Only mostly prog!

Man this means counting my albums again for the first time in years.... Last time I checked, I had some 3500+ and that's at least two years ago. 
I do have a lot of music from around 1967 to 1974 though.

To be fair, it's the only thing I've ever collected, and I started when I was 8 or something. I don't have a car(or driver's license for that matter), kids or a mortgage either.

Unless there is some database out there for me to automatically check against then this looks like way too much effort. I can say I have stuff going back to the 40's, it picks up significantly from 69 through 79 then drops off until the mid 90's when it picks up again through today.

Main buying period between 1972 - 1980 ( vinyl )

Occasional purchases during 80s
 
Kinda hiatus in the 90s and early 00's
 
Since around 2008 have rediscovered passion for music ( and particularly prog )
 
In last two years have purchased c 100 CDs ...which is by far the most music I have ever got.
 
Thanks to sites like this and being able to find and order on-line.

One day (would have to be an especially boring one ) I will catalogue my collection. Probably about 700 albums and very  few are before 1970.

No idea I'm afraid.  Just threw some in a bag to throw away.  Mostly recent 2000s albums.

Most popular of my albums are from 1972 till 1982 i reckon.  So Prog through to post -punk on the whole.

Impossible to tell, or even guess. I stopped cataloguing my album collection in 1995 and only a few of them were ever dated. I tried analysing the small part of my collection that is in my iTunes database but the date tags are pretty screwed with re-issues and compilations being wrongly dated by Gracenote and I don't organise or tag albums by genre - SuperAnalyzer reported that only 37% of my albums had complete tag information, which isn't really good enough for a proper analysis. So the following graph is a complete crock because the 1000 songs released in 2005 is obviously incorrect,which does not bode well for any of the other numbers:

 

(as you can see, I don't use iTunes as a music player)

1969 = 45

1970 = 54

1971 = 66

1972 = 89

1973 = 98

1974 = 79

1975 = 78

1976 = 91

1977 = 80

1978 = 85

1979 = 91

1980 = 91

1981 = 67

1982 = 69

1983 = 54

1984 = 43

1985 = 51

1986 = 60

1987 = 53

1988 = 48

1989 = 61

1990 = 54

1991 = 67

1992 = 60

1993 = 66

1996 = 67

1997 = 64

1998 = 61

1999 = 62

2000 = 75

2001 = 49

2002 = 65

2003 = 65

2004 = 61

2005 = 48

2006 = 73

I think this also summarises my own position very well.

I have thousands of CDs and LPs and can't even guess as to how they divide out by year, but just looking at my iTunes library, with about 41K songs in it (much of it from the aforementioned CDs and LPs), I see that Weidorje's self titled album is classified as being released in 2012, which makes me think a tally using iTunes wouldn't be too reliable anyway.

Hahah Sagi, I feel you man!
There's no way in hell, I am doing that.
I do have a lot of my collection transfered over to a portable hard disk, but I have vinyls under my bed, cds in the kitchen cupboards and stuff packed into big boxes at my parents place. Seems damn near insurmountable to me.
