Where and when can I find statistics concerning sales of my book?  My book, Capped, was published in November.

If it's at amazon.com then you need to create an author's page.  The author's page once created will have rankings and sales data on Amazon.com books.

There are other services to provide this data also.  This is an easy one.  good luck

If its an Amazon book, you can also track more or less accurate sales data from Novelrank.com. If it is not an Amazon book, then only your publisher can provide sales data (and some report only once or twice a year).

"data" seems to be the eternal mystery among writers. No other business would run that way and no other product provider would except such shoddy information.

In this technological age, every time a book is sold, that info should be available to the author.  All the wondering is ridiculous.

Those who publish with Lightning Source should get a record of how many books are printed - since only enough are printed for store placement and sales.  Even a record of printing should be provided to authors.

Did you self-publish to amazon via a personal KDP account? If so, open your account dashboard and click Reports. You'll find everything you need to know about sales and royalties there.

If you did not self-publish, the publisher has access to those data.
