Wikipedia Statistics - Africa

Friday March 31, 2017

  May 2016: The major overhaul of Wikistats reports has entered a new phase.  

  First phase focused on migrating the traffic analysis reports to our new infrastructure. Those are operational now.  
  The Analytics Team will now proceed to also migrate data collection and reporting about wiki content and contributors.  
  First results are expected later this year.  

  More info at this announcement
  You can see the first wireframes for Wikistats 2.0 and comment on the design here.



Mar 2016 !New! Extra columns added. Also, want to bookmark this page with default sort column? Now you can!
Add url argument 'sortcol=x' (where x is 4-6|8-17), add D for descending sort. E.g. 'Sitemap.htm?sortcol=13D'

Wikipedias are initially ordered by number of speakers of the language

Speakers: Number of speakers of a language is the estimated total of primary and secondary speakers, is in many cases a very rough estimation (based on the page on the English Wikipedia about that language)
Regions are parts of the world where the language is spoken in substantial amounts (compared to total number of speakers). Regions where a language gained presence only by a recent diaspora are generally not included.
Region codes: AF:Africa, AS:Asia, EU:Europe, NA:North America, OC:Oceania, SA:South America, W:World Wide, CL:Constructed Language
