Community Safety - Quarterly Data from the Wikimedia Movement

In June and July of 2022, we deployed the 2nd Community Safety survey on 5 language Wikipedias: English, Farsi, French, Portuguese, and Spanish.

The question asked of users was:

“In the last 30 days, have you felt unsafe or uncomfortable contributing to Wikipedia (xx.wikipedia.org)?”

with xx denoting the Wikipedia language (for example, for French it was “fr.wikipedia.org”).

The options to respond were: “Yes,” “No,” and “I'm not sure.”

A few notes about reading this data

  • Percents reported unweighted reflect the actual responses to the survey.
  • Percents reported weighted reflect the responses to the survey with weights applied to shape the data to the distribution of editors on the wiki by “edit bucket” (a user having made 5 to 99 edits, 100 to 999 edits, or 1000 or more edits).
    • We report weighted data when we see a statistical difference in how different edit bucket users respond to the question. This helps to make the data more reflective of the actual population of the wiki.
  • If you want to apply this data to the broader population of the wiki, make sure to look for the margin of error! For example, note the difference in meaning between:
    • “77% of survey respondents said that they did not feel unsafe or uncomfortable contributing to English Wikipedia in the month before the survey”
    • “We estimate that 76% to 79% of English Wikipedians felt safe contributing to English Wikipedia in the month before the survey”
      • The first example tells us about the results of the actual survey, while the second example approximates how the overall population feels (those who were surveyed, and those who were not) based on the survey results, a 95% confidence interval, and margin of error.

With that, here are the results of our Wave 2 analyses for each wiki:

Wikipedia en inglés

For the English Wikipedia Wave 2 data, a chi-squared test found no differences in how users from different “edit buckets” (5 to 99 edits, 100 to 999 edits, and 1000 or more edits) responded to the survey. We thus report unweighted data.

Based on the responses to the survey, we estimate that users on English Wikipedia overall:

  • 14 to 18% felt unsafe or uncomfortable contributing to English Wikipedia in the 30 days before the survey.
  • 74 to 77% did not feel unsafe or uncomfortable contributing to English Wikipedia in the 30 days before the survey.
  • 7 to 11% were unsure about whether they had felt unsafe or uncomfortable contributing to English Wikipedia in the 30 days before the survey.
In the last 30 days, have you felt unsafe or uncomfortable contributing to Wikipedia (en.wikipedia.org)? Survey Results for En.WP (Unweighted) Estimates for En.WP population (Margin of Error = ±1.74%, Confidence Interval = 95%)

Yes 15.9% 14.2 to 17.6%

Wikipedia en español

Respecto a los datos de Wikipedia en español (junio-julio de 2022), la prueba χ² encontró diferencias en cómo respondieron a la encuesta los usuarios de diferentes grupos de edición (de 5 a 99 ediciones, de 100 a 999 ediciones o de 1000 o más ediciones)[1]. Por lo tanto, informamos de datos ponderar.

En función de las respuestas a la encuesta, calculamos que, en general, los usuarios de Wikipedia en español :

  • Entre el 21 y el 28 % se sintió inseguro/a o incómodo/a al contribuir a la Wikipedia en español durante los 30 días anteriores a la encuesta.
  • Entre el 63 y el 69 % no se sintió inseguro/a o incómodo/a contribuyendo a la Wikipedia en español durante los 30 días anteriores a la encuesta.
  • Del 6 al 13 % no estaban seguros/as de si se habían sentido inseguros/as o incómodos/as contribuyendo a la Wikipedia en español durante los 30 días anteriores a la encuesta.
En los últimos 30 días, ¿te has sentido inseguro(a) o incómodo(a) al colaborar en Wikipedia (es.wikipedia.org)?

Wikipedia en persa

For the Farsi Wikipedia Wave 2 data, a chi-squared test[2] found differences in how users from different “edit buckets” (5 to 99 edits, 100 to 999 edits, and 1000 or more edits) responded to the survey. We thus report data weighted to the edit buckets of the overall user population in 2021.

Based on the responses to the survey, we estimate that users on Farsi Wikipedia overall:

  • 21 to 27% felt unsafe or uncomfortable contributing to Farsi Wikipedia in the 30 days before the survey.
  • 56 to 62% did not feel unsafe or uncomfortable contributing to Farsi Wikipedia in the 30 days before the survey.
  • 14 to 20% were unsure about whether they had felt unsafe or uncomfortable contributing to Farsi Wikipedia in the 30 days before the survey.

Wikipedia en francés

For the French Wikipedia Wave 2 data, a chi-squared test found no differences in how users from different edit buckets (5 to 99 edits, 100 to 999 edits, or 1000 or more edits) responded to the survey. We thus report unweighted data.

Based on the responses to the survey, we estimate that users on French Wikipedia overall:

  • 8 to 15% felt unsafe or uncomfortable contributing to French Wikipedia in the 30 days before the survey.
  • 81 to 88% did not feel unsafe or uncomfortable contributing to French Wikipedia in the 30 days before the survey.
  • 1 to 8% were unsure about whether they had felt unsafe or uncomfortable contributing to French Wikipedia in the 30 days before the survey.

Wikipedia en portugués

For the Portuguese Wikipedia Wave 2 data, a chi-squared test found no differences in how users from different “edit buckets” (5 to 99 edits, 100 to 999 edits, and 1000 or more edits) responded to the survey. We thus report unweighted data.

Based on the responses to the survey, we estimate that users on Portuguese Wikipedia overall:

  • 23 to 29% felt unsafe or uncomfortable contributing to Portuguese Wikipedia in the 30 days before the survey.
  • 62 to 69% did not feel unsafe or uncomfortable contributing to Portuguese Wikipedia in the 30 days before the survey.
  • 5 to 12% were unsure about whether they had felt unsafe or uncomfortable contributing to Portuguese Wikipedia in the 30 days before the survey.

Yes 26.0 % 22.6 to 29.4%

Past Results

Please note, if you are comparing current results to past results, to pay attention to the margins of error. Overlapping margins of error between waves mean that a change seen may not be statistically significant.

  1. X2 (4, N = 869) = 11.887, p = .018.
  2. X2 (4, N = 1074) = 26.031, p = <.001.
  3. We estimate response rates by calculating the number of unique responses after data cleaning divided by the number of unique survey session tokens from impressions. This gives a slightly smaller response rate than the actual, as users who clear their browser cookies or switch devices may have the survey shown to them again and WMF staff also force the survey to be shown in order to test for quality assurance.
