Statistics related to Africa. Resources, specific statistics and reports.
Web access by region/country
Page views by category
Query category Africa/Afrika/Afrique on WikiAfrica project languages English/French/Italian and also Afrikaans/Swahili. Reports will be updated monthly (under construction).
Breakdown of categories included/excluded. Each report with page views has a sister report which lists the full category tree included and mentions which subcategories were left out.
Analysis by category. The statistics are collected through a script by Erik Zachte that can collect for almost any wikipedia all categories below some arbitrary root category, then collect all article titles for those categories, then collect page views for each article and rank those by popularity.
Categories excluded. The script allows also a blacklist of categories that should not be expanded, as those are too generic and would pull in too much content outside the topic at hand (they would spawn a large sub-tree of categories most of which would not be relevant. Examples of too broad categories for top category Africa are religions, world wars, Mediterranean geography, etc.).
Views by region. At the moment it is not possible to see how much of the content on Africa is viewed from Africa. We can do a breakdown of page views by region/country even for edits (please refer above) but not on this detailed level.
The idea is to run these reports every month.
