Hi -

Frank Schulenberg did an interesting analysis that looked at the proportion of people creating a new account on Wikipedia who go on to make an edit within 10 days. It was surprising to see that Hindi Wikipedia had a very different rate that some other projects (see below). Can anyone share an explanation?

English         31
German  35
Russian         26
Swedish         30
Hindi   9

FYI - Frank did this for a new initiative starting in October: http://outreach.wikimedia.org/wiki/Account_Creation_Improvement_Project
