AikiWebsters Nationalities?

Are there any stats on AikiWeb re the nationality of members? I couldn't find a thread or a poll on it - though I'm not the smartest with these infernal machines

I'd guess:


USA 70%
UK and Republic of Ireland 10%
Canada 5%
SE Asia 5%
Continental European 5%
Japan 2%
Australasia 2%
South American 2%
Russian/ ex soviet countries 2%
Other 1%

That's 104% I know

It would be good if it were possible to sort the members list by country, but I appreciate this may be be a big job to set up.

Re: AikiWebsters Nationalities?

So, do these figures look about right to you?

100% Scottish here - and you do know that 96.365% of statistics are just made up on the spot?

I've heard that 5 out of 4 people don't understand statistics at all...

Re: AikiWebsters Nationalities?

Well....

Regarding figures and statistics, my father used to say, "Figures never lie. But liars figure."

I would tend to agree that the majority of posters (not necessarily members) here are American, followed closely by those nationalities of english speaking nations (i.e. Great Britain, Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and certain Asian nations.) Beyond that, I haven't a clue.

Just my thoughts,

Brenda
