Using census and other sources, we extract mostly current surname frequencies in different areas. See the sources for information down to county / municipality areas that is available in some locales.

SurnameUSA #   UK #Australia #Soundex
Hoare   611   6,981    2,183     H600
Hore   159     659       893     H600
Hoar1,678     899       139     H600
Horr   630      --          6     H600
Hoard3,836      --         --     H630
Harr5,466      --          6     H600
Hord3,490      **         32     H630
Hor    421      --        114     H600
Notes: '--' in UK had no data as was statistically too small to disclose.  USA minimum cutoff was 100 people because they did not give a breakdown smaller than whole country level.  UK site provides a breakdown at the county level for each surname. '**' some use seen in Wales and Exeter in 1895 census.

Sources:
2000 USA Census Surnames
1998 UK Voter Rolls
1898 UK Census Surnames also available at the same link above.
1990's Australia

WorldNames provides maps with rough data ranges displayed down to a county / district level across many locations in the world.  Useful to see where you may likely find common surname descendants today.  Data spotty and suspect though (see India for Hore surname).

Edited: To drop Ranks and include Australia.  Thanks to Rob Hoare for pointing this out.  We await his longer treatise.
