Successful space launches include all military, commercial, and government launches that deliver a payload to the proper orbit and location.

NOTE: The three-month moving average is the average number of successful launches for the most recent month and two preceding months. Launches per month have been adjusted for a 30-day month. The actual number of launches during a month is multiplied by the ratio of 30 to the number of days in that month to yield the adjusted number of launches for that month.
