Hi all,

The Analytics team at the Wikimedia Foundation [0] has recently
started releasing monthly data that gives you some information about
the count of active editors [1] per country contributing to the
different Wikipedia language editions. You can review the full
announcement [2] and play with the data [3].

I'm sharing this information on this list as many of the activities of
affiliates and volunteers of Wikipedia are focused on specific
geographies (through organizing events such as editathons, building
partnerships, running contests such as Wiki Loves *) and you may be
interested in monitoring how the geography of the editors in your
projects change over time.

If you think the data is of interest to you and you need help using
it, I have some pre-baked news for you. ;) The Research team, which
I'm a member of, will start (experimental) monthly IRC office hours
starting January and you can drop by and ask for help to use the data.
(I also just noticed that Analytics will start their own office hours
in January [4] though I'm less sure about the scope of theirs.)
