Progress in 2007Edit

  • Many Wikipedias in Africa, Asia and Latin America, and a number of other Wikipedias that use small and marginalized languages, made great progress in 2007. This shows that Wikipedia is progressing towards becoming less dominated by Europe and North America and integrating the entire world more, including a growing number of languages with new or weak written traditions.
  • Of the 253 Wikipedias created, 1 has more than 2 million articles, 2 more than 500,000, 13 have more than 100,000, 60 more than 10,000, 73 more than 1,000, and 63 more than 100. One year ago, 1 had more than 1,5 million articles, 1 more than 500,000, 8 had more than 100,000, 27 more than 10,000, 35 more than 1,000, and 17 more than 100.
  • The Wikipedia total number of articles was 9,305,766. One year ago, there were 6,062,262 articles.
