In this part of am.xml the content all looks Amharic:
<type key="collation" type="phonebook">የስልክ ደብተር ድርድር ቅደም ተከተል</type>
<type key="collation" type="phonetic">የፎነቲክ ድርደራ ቅደም ተከተል</type>
<type key="collation" type="pinyin">ፒንይን የድርድር ቅደም ተከተል</type>
In this part English and Amharic content are mixed:
<characterLabel type="musical_symbols">የሙዚቃ ምልክቶች</characterLabel>
Is there an established system to derive a meaningful "percentage of CLDR coverage for Amharic" from the data? Just from these (not really random) examples one might estimate 70%.

I would like to get a percentage coverage for today, as well as look at the increase over time. So far here is what I have been told:
> The files in common/main are organized by locale, which uses a code, eg fr.xml for French. So you can look for the ones you want. To get the codes, you can look at http://www.unicode.org/cldr/charts/latest/supplemental/languages_and_scripts.html <http://www.unicode.org/cldr/charts/latest/supplemental/languages_and_scripts.html>. For example, Ethiopic is 'am'. For more information see the spec: http://unicode.org/reports/tr35/ <http://unicode.org/reports/tr35/>
