On 29 March 2015, the updateArticleCount.php maintenance script was run on all Wikipedia, Wiktionary, Wikiquote, Wikisource, Wikinews, Wikiversity, and Wikivoyage wikis. For more context, see Article counts revisited.

This table lists article counts for all 679 potentially affected wikis (no Wikibooks wikis are included since they were not recounted). It also shows changes to total pages and page edits for comparison.

The "before" numbers were collected by EmausBot at 00:00 UTC on 28 March 2015 for the Wikipedia and Wikivoyage wikis (about 29 hours before the script was run), and at 12:00 UTC on 27 March 2015 for the other projects (41 hours before). The "after" numbers were collected at 12:00 UTC on 31 March 2015 for all of the wikis (67 hours after the script was started). The only exceptions are the numbers for the Marathi and Oriya Wikisources, which were collected by a Perl script written by User:Dcljr at 08:33 UTC on 19 March 2015 (10 days before the maintenance script was run) and at 05:58 UTC on 4 April 2015 (6 days after). Unfortunately, a tighter time frame than this was not possible. (Actually, a much narrower time frame is possible for the Wikipedias, but has not been attempted here due to uncertainty about how long the maintenance script actually took to complete the recounting process. The Wikipedia numbers may change later after further research is conducted.)

For the exact source of these numbers (except the two aforementioned Wikisources), see the page histories of List of Wikipedias/Table, Wiktionary/Table, Wikiquote/Table, Wikisource/Table, Wikinews/Table, Wikiversity/Table, and Wikivoyage/Table.
