Wikipedia Diversity Observatory/Culture Gap (coverage)

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

This page shows some stastistics that explain how well each Wikipedia language edition covers the Cultural Context Content (CCC) articles from the other languages.

The following table is particularly useful in order to understand the content culture gap between language editions, that is the imbalances across languages editions in content representing each language cultural context. Specifically, it shows how well each language edition covers the other language editions CCC by counting the CCC covered articles, i.e. articles from other language CCC that exist in one particular language edition.

Languages are sorted in alphabetic order by their Wikicode, and the columns present the following statistics: the number of articles in the Wikipedia language edition (Articles), the first five other languages CCC in terms of most articles covered and the percentage of coverage computed according to the total number of CCC articles of those language edition, the relative coverage (R. Coverage) of all languages CCC computed as the average of each language edition CCC percentage of coverage, the total coverage (T. Coverage) of all languages CCC computed as the percentage of coverage of all the articles that belong to other language editions CCC, and the total number of articles covered (Covered Art.) that belong other language editions CCC.

As it can be seen, languages tend to cover better the CCC from other languages with which they limit geographically, they have a linguistic affinity or with a specifically dominant geopolitical position such as English, French, German among others.

This table is updated automatically on a monthly basis as soon as a new CCC dataset is generated and imbalances are calculated.
