How long does it take for a phone number to be recycled?

I'm curious how long the period generally is that a particular phone number is not in use before it is reassigned. I recently got a new phone number and feel like I'm receiving an awful lot of calls asking for the person who I can only assume previously had the number. (Either that or a lot of this person's contacts are dialing the wrong number.) Are these people just the ones who aren't on the Christmas card list because they too rarely call, or shall I blame it on the phone number not being dead for long enough?
