Livejournal population statistics, round 2. [Mar. 18th, 2008|05:35 pm]

It seems like every time LJ does something stupid I get inspired to write another population post. I tried tackling LJ's gender balance back in November in this post in lj_research, but the raw data makes no sense and I sort of gave up. Oh well.

Today I'm going to update the population post I made in August of last year. I'm only going to show data from Jan 1 2005 to March 15 2008. This time period includes the entire length of 6A's ownership of LiveJournal.

My methodology this time is roughly the same as that of before. I used the stats.bml and stats.txt files archived on the Internet Archive. Since the Internet Archive's archive of those pages has grown sparse lately, and has no data after May 28, 2007, I supplemented it with numbers recorded in this post in no_lj_ads and my own downloads of files. The raw data is available here if you like. (Yes, I'm using Excel now to make the graphs. Excel sucks, but it sucks less than the program I was using.)

It may be easier for you to open the image gallery containing the figures here in another tab or window to follow along.

Next time: Either age, or country origin. Hopefully the data for that will make more sense than the gender data. Thanks again to brad for leaving the code open, everyone in no_lj_ads who collected data, and Viewers Like You.

(If you're on my friends list, you've seen most of this already.)

LiveJournal is shrinking, at least in terms of active accounts. The number of active accounts reached its peak in April of 2005, and has been decreasing ever since then. Let's take a look at the graphs.
