Out of the 324 people on board, ("One of Us") there were 72 initial survivors (71 humans and 1 dog) spread across 3 sections (1 front, 49 middle and 22 tail).

Expanded Universe

Several characters have so far only appeared in expanded universe media, such as video games and novels. Due to the status of this material, these characters are considered as canonical (or "real") as the characters appearing within the show.

Deuterocanonical

The characters below have only appeared in the deuterocanonical sources of the ABC Diary and the website Oceanic-air.com. Although these sources are official, they are not created or ordered by the creators of the show, and thus the actual status of the characters only appearing here remains unclear.

Other possible survivors

Over 50 extras have rotated to portray the background (non-speaking) survivors of Flight 815. Some survivors have been given nicknames by fans, some of which have also been associated with specific names from the dialogue in the script of episodes. This is merely an artifact from vagaries of the irregular hiring of such non-salaried extras: The number of individuals in the pool of every extra who has ever appeared on the beach dating back to Season 1 exceeds the "official" number of survivors. Therefore, during the course of the series, some extras have suddenly appeared, while others temporarily or permanently disappeared. Extras that have been incidentally given or associated with a name in script dialog appear in the main table, above. See the main article for a full list of extras, and any given or fan names.

Tally of living and dead survivors

51 of the total 73 survivors (including Aaron and Vincent) are known to have either died or presumed to have died since the crash. That leaves up to 22 remaining survivors, possibly more if some of the presumed dead characters are actually alive.

Those who have died or are presumed to have died are (51):

Main Characters (14):
Boone Carlyle, Shannon Rutherford, Ana Lucia Cortez, Libby Smith, Mr. Eko, Nikki Fernandez, Paulo, Charlie Pace, Michael Dawson, John Locke, Sayid Jarrah, Sun-Hwa Kwon, Jin-Soo Kwon and Jack Shephard.
Supporting & Minor Characters (37):
Gary Troup, Seth Norris, Edward Mars, Man on Beach, Donald, Joanna Miller, Nathan, Scott Jackson, Leslie Arzt, Doug, Blonde Casualty, Jerome, Neil, Craig, Steve, Richard, N.D. Survivor, Sullivan, Tourniquet Man, Gas Man, Woman, Tracy, 13 unnamed middle section survivors and 2 unnamed tail section survivors .
NOTE: Though presumed killed in the flaming arrow attack several characters have not been seen since earlier seasons. It is very hard to determine how many people were killed; however, executive producers commented that a lot of survivors died in the attack.

The known living survivors are (12):

Main Characters (7):
Kate Austen, James "Sawyer" Ford, Hugo "Hurley" Reyes, Claire Littleton, Rose Nadler, Bernard Nadler and Walt Lloyd.
Supporting Characters (5):
Aaron Littleton, Cindy Chandler, Zach, Emma and Vincent.

The characters with an unknown fate are (10):

Supporting & Minor Characters (10):
Jim, Eli, Nancy, Curly-Haired Guy, Blonde Guy, German Tailender and 4 unnamed tail section survivors.

Partially identified characters:

There are a number of characters that are either unseen (i.e. a name without a face) or unnamed (i.e. a face without a name). It is assumed that the unseen characters overlap somehow with the unnamed characters.
Unseen characters:
Tracy, Lance, Jim, Eli, Nancy, Curly-Haired Guy, Blonde Guy, German Tailender and characters identified in expanded universe and deuterocanonical sources.
Unnamed characters:
Due to turnover in the background cast, there are more unnamed background characters than there are unnamed survivors on the island. Because of this, it is impossible to list specific unnamed characters unless their status is known.
