a “Mean Daily Page Views” from http://toolserver.org/~emw/wikistats/ were only available after 2008-01-01 and include programmatic page requests.

b include data from 2003-06-12 (when the most recent article, Heliocentrism, originated) through 2012-07-31, when this analysis was run.

c Mean daily edit count excludes successive edits by the same user (n = 23,156).

d Mean count of words changed (inserted, deleted, or changed, n = 8,525). Due to the heavily right-skewed distributions, geometric means and standard deviations are shown. The number of observations (n) is constant for mean edits per day because all days were included, while only days with at least one edit were used to calculate the mean words changed.
