Hello All Please see the PDF file available at the location http://shijualexonline.googlepages.com/2010_01_january_en.pdf for a detailed statistical analysis of the Indian language wikipedias for the month of 2010 January.
The data for this report is taken from the statistical analysis of all the WikiMedia wikis prepared and maintained by Erik Zachte (Website: http://infodisiac.com/). The statistics is available at http://stats.wikimedia.org/EN/Sitemap.htm. Special thanks to Erik for all the support he has extended while I was compiling this report. The data is collected on the last day of every month. That is, the statistical data for the month of 2010 January is collected at 2010 January 31 23:59 PM GMT. The statistical analysis of the following Indian language wikipedias is included in this blog post. * Assamese (http://as.wikipedia.org) * Bengali (http://bn.wikipedia.org) * Bhojpuri (http://bh.wikipedia.org) * Bishnupriya Manipuri (http://bpy.wikipedia.org) * Gujarathi (http://gu.wikipedia.org) * Hindi (http://hi.wikipedia.org) * Kannada (http://kn.wikipedia.org) * Kashmiri (http://ks.wikipedia.org) * Malayalam (http://ml.wikipedia.org) * Marathi (http://mr.wikipedia.org) * Odia (Oriya) (http://or.wikipedia.org) * Pali (http://pi.wikipedia.org) * Punjabi (http://pa.wikipedia.org) * Sanskrit (http://sa.wikipedia.org) * Sindhi (http://sd.wikipedia.org) * Tamil (http://ta.wikipedia.org) * Telugu (http://te.wikipedia.org) * Urdu (http://ur.wikipedia.org) I have also included some other languages of Indian Subcontinent like Sinhala, Burmese, and so on; * Burmese (http://my.wikipedia.org) * Nepal Bhasha/Newari (http://new.wikipedia.org) * Nepali (http://ne.wikipedia.org) * Sinhala (http://si.wikipedia.org) I know that these languages are not among the official languages the India. But I am very much interested to see the wiki activity for these languages due to various reasons. Especially Sinhala and Burmese Wikipedia. I hope this initiative will improve the interaction between different Indian Language Wikipedias/wikipedians. We (Malayalam Wikipedians - http://ml.wikipedia.org) are maintaining a similar comparison study of the major Indian Language wikipedias for the past two years. This analysis has helped us to understand the status of Malayalam Wikipedia as compared to other Indian Language Wikipedias. I hope this report will help other Indian language wikipedias also. Please feel free to add your suggestions/analysis as comment to this post. I have divided this report into two different sections. 1. Statistical analysis of Wikipedias 2. Localization status of Mediawiki software Following are the different topics covered under each section. *Wikipedia Statistics* Article statistics Number of Articles Number of Edits Break up of edits (2009 February – 2010 January) Edits per article Number of new articles/day Average size of an article (bytes) Database size (in Mega Bytes) Percentage of articles with size greater than 500 bytes Percentage of articles with size greater than 2000 bytes (2 kilobytes) User Statistics Number of active wikipedians Page views per month (All figures in Lakhs/month) MediaWiki Statistics *Localization statistics* Media Wiki Localization status (percentage) See the PDF http://shijualexonline.googlepages.com/2010_01_january_en.pdffor the detailed analysis. You can make your own analysis and conclusions after going through each topic in the PDF. Along with each month's statistical report, I would like to put forward a question related to Indian langaugage Wikis The question for this month is : *Question for 2010 january:* *Which is the first Indian language Wikipedia?* Support your answer with sufficient references. Please let me know in case there are any issues. Regards Shiju Alex
