Japanese and Mandarin Chinese turnout[edit]

Note that the Japanese and Mandarin Chinese Wikipedia both have a very low percentage of eligible users who voted, compared to other projects comprising at least 1% of the eligible electorate. The Japanese Wikipedia especially has an absolutely abysmal percentage, comprising 4.9% of the eligible electorate but only 1.3% of total votes, suggesting that we really need to improve outreach to that project in the future.Jackattack1597 (talk) 23:49, 31 August 2021 (UTC)Reply

About 100 Japanese users voted in the last day! 4nn1l2 (talk) 05:25, 1 September 2021 (UTC)Reply

Stats ideas[edit]

  • Total turnout, turnout by language, turnout by sister project, turnout by groups of languages. (That is, aggregate the "Turnout by wiki" table into larger groups.)
  • Translations: how many languages were how many candidate questions/answers and statements were translated into how many languages? What portion of users had translations available in their home wiki's language? How much did the number increase over the course of the election?
  • Traffic to statements/questions/answers (including traffic to translations) relative to previous years? (Ideally this would be uniques, but I don't think those are recorded, so pageviews is a decent proxy.)
  • Sources of traffic to the election, if possible. (Are CentralNotice clicks tracked? Maybe check for "bumps" from particular wikis after particular local announcements?)

Breadth of participation data[edit]

Can we see how this year's 216 Wiki communities that saw voters participate compare to previous elections. Thanks Raju Narisetti (WMF Trustee)


What is the NULL row in the per-wiki table?

Cumulative preferences[edit]

I made a graph to show what people's first, second, etc preferences were per candidate. This is meaningless in the voting system we use, but its still kind of interesting to look at:
