Sudhanwa,

Anecdotally speaking, active editors to Tamil Wikipedia come from India, Sri

Not many from Malaysia and Singapore as much as we would wish.

I agree that data analysis would help.

 "That language is an instrument of human reason, and not merely a medium for 
the expression of thought, is a truth generally admitted."
- George Boole, quoted in Iverson's Turing Award Lecture
