User:Ejrh/100 random pages

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The first survey of 100 pages was conducted on Friday 24th of January 2003. The second survey was conducted on Monday 26th of January 2004 (and it was late by only 11 months!).

Methodology: Visit Random page and record the resulting visited page. Repeat a further 99 times.

I have attempted to classify each page into general categories. The categories are not perfect. Please discuss any errors or issues with my classification system on the talk page so I can fix them. (The classification of the second survey is a little inconsistent with that of the first, but this does not affect the summary.)
