The focus of this article is on quantitative data about Meta that appeal to a wider audience.


Growth Figures[edit]

The Meta project retains a full history of all article revisions. For each update is recorded who made it, and when, and what had been changed. This makes it possible to collect a wealth of statistical data, and allows plotting of historical trends.

21 Oct 2007: Table data derived from wikistats output will be added soon.

In-Depth Statistics

Wikistats: lots of tables and charts on the Meta project. Growth of all Wikimedia projects in one concise chart
  1. "Wikistats, project page". Wikimedia. 
  2. a b c d "Wikistats, project page". Wikimedia. 
  3. pictures, audio files, video files
  4. For many years visitor statistics were not collected due to the large overhead it caused on the servers. Summer 2007 a new project has started to collect these statistics using more efficient sampling techniques. No results are available yet.
  5. Editors defined as "Registered contributors who edited at least 10 times since they arrived".
  6. "Wikistats, current status". Wikimedia.
