436640 questions, and 448339 users. 680991 answers (January 27, 2016 Noon, PST)

    Some statistics to ponder about our website. 

    Almost 11700 more USERS than QUESTIONS here on akaQA?   I don't understand.  Did we have that many people sign up and do NOTHING? 
    Average number of questions per user =  .97 questions per user (less than 1!)
    Average number of answers per user = 1.51 answers per user . 
    Average number of answers per question = 1.55 answers per question.

    Our top four contributors combined have answered 168899 times, which is almost 25%.

    What conclusions can you come up with from these statistics? 
    If I have made some mistakes in calculations, please let me know and I'll edit this part. Thanks.

    The users are calculated from visits per question, sometimes questions are "viewed" hundreds of times but may only have a few answers, I wouldn't put any trust in any of these numbers.


    Why would one not calculate the number of users by the number of individuals who have "signed up"? I know we've had several double-entry types, but certainly not 11,000+?

    When answers are displayed on Googles pages the person who clicks on the akaQA answer doesn't need to sign up to view the answer, therefore that person is counted as a user, I've already clicked in to this question 4 times already, adding to the number of "views".

    Thanks for clearing up how we got so many more users. It doesn't sound like a very good way to keep valid records at all (in my opinion); of course, in the big scheme of things, this doesn't even show as a blip on the radar.

    To complicated for my country bumpkin brain to calculate.

    168,899..Dang that's a lot of questions for four people to answer. 

    Thanks for the information.
