Depth is again another metric with shows the overall collabration in a
wikipedia. Mathematically it is represented as:

[image: Depth=\frac{Edits}{Articles}\cdot \frac{NonArticles}{Articles}\cdot
\left( 1-\frac{Articles}{Total} \right)]Read more about Wikipedia Depth

Depth will be higher for wikis which has various activities in non-article
namespaces, But it will be less for the wikis where only the article
creation is going on. That is one of main reason why it is less for most of
the big Indian wikis.

Depth is NOT an indicator of article quality, but an indicator of overall
activism in the wiki.
