This Wikipedia:Statistics page measures the size of the English-language edition of Wikipedia; mostly page and article count, with some information on the more complicated question of the size of the database. As of 22 July 2018, there are 5,686,211 articles in the English Wikipedia.

Wikipedia continues to grow, and the number of articles in Wikipedia is increasing by over 20,000 a month. The number of articles added to Wikipedia every month reached its maximum in 2006, at over 50,000 new articles a month, and has been slowly but steadily declining since then. While this might seem to show that Wikipedia's growth is slowing or stopping, it should be noted that the amount of text added to Wikipedia articles every year has been constant since 2006, at roughly 1 gigabyte of (compressed) text added per year. This implies that as time progresses, proportionally more content is added to existing articles rather than new articles, and that Wikipedia has maintained the same persistent rate of growth throughout the past decade. In other words, over time, the average article size is growing faster than the number of articles.

Most of the earlier entries were extracted from Wikipedia:Announcements. Later entries are taken from observations of the new software's built-in article count features. For information on what Wikipedia's software counts as an article, see Wikipedia:What is an article#Lists of articles and statistics.

The article count of bot-generated Wikipedias such as the Cebuano-language edition of Wikipedia, as well as the Swedish- and the Waray-language editions, grow much faster than those that are primarily written by humans such as the English Wikipedia. Lsjbot is the primary author of those three bot-generated Wikipedias. However, individual articles in bot-generated Wikipedias are on average much shorter than those in primarily human-written Wikipedias. Thus, article count alone is a poor indicator of the scale and scope of a Wikipedia.

Wikipedia growth of article count[edit]

Before 2012 Wikipedia's growth approximately followed a Gompertz growth model. This model was created in June 2010, and it is determined by the Gompertz function,

with parameters:

a = 4378449
b = −15.42677
c = −0.384124
e = 2.71828 (Euler's number)
t is the time in years since 1/1/2000 (so 1/1/2010 is t = 10.00).
Number of Wikipedia articles[1]
Wikipedia editors with >100 edits per month[1]


Some characteristics of this model are:

  • a pivot point at which the growth is at its peak. For en.wikipedia.org this might have been in August 2006 with 60,000 new articles per month.
  • a maximum to the number of articles of about 4.4 million (as determined by parameter a of the model). It should be noted that there will always be new events and people to describe in the future, which this model does not account for.

This model is related to the quantity (number of articles). The quality might still increase independently.

Graphs of size and growth rate[edit]

The two graph images show: in the first graph, the historical and expected total number of articles; in the second graph, the monthly growth rate, slowing since late 2006 (line sloping downward).

Detailed analysis of the data shows that from 2006 to 2009 the article growth rate followed a six-monthly cycle with faster growth in February and August than in May and November. This cycle does not appear in the growth-rate graph here, because the values shown in the graph have been averaged over periods of six months.

Size of the English Wikipedia database[edit]

Total article text in English Wikipedia, measured in gigabytes (compressed).[2]

There are various elements of the Wikipedia database to consider when describing its size.

The most obvious include the markup text of the articles, templates, media/file descriptions, and primary meta-pages that would be needed to render the text of the latest version of the current encyclopedia proper. The associated talk pages and the other namespaces (User, Wikipedia, Help, etc.) are often considered separately. Each of these has an associated edit history, etc. In addition there are the images and other multimedia (stored in common across all Wikipedias).

It is important to take into account whether the data is compressed, and if so what compression scheme is used.

Besides the English Wikipedia, there are hundreds of Wikipedias in other languages to consider, as well.

As of June 2015, the dump of all pages with complete edit history in XML format at enwiki dump progress on 20150602 is about 100 GB compressed using 7-Zip, and 10 TB uncompressed.

In April 2010, the size of the full English Wikipedia edit history was 5.6 TB uncompressed.[3]

As of May 2015, the current version of the English Wikipedia article / template / redirect text was about 51 GB uncompressed in XML format.

The size of the article text in the English Wikipedia, measured in gigabytes (compressed), grew steadily from 1 GB in 2006 to 9 GB in 2013 to 11.5 GB in 2015 as shown in the chart. However, due to an error in compiling the data dump for April 2016, the size of the article text shrunk by approximately 9% to 10.8 GB compressed (though the actual size of the article text grew in reality, which can be seen by comparing with the March 2016 and May 2016 data dumps).[4] Likewise, there is also a similar error when compiling the April 20, 2018 data, showing as 12.85 GB (again, the actual size of the article text grew in reality).[5]

As of February 2013, the XML file containing current pages only, no user or talk pages, was 42,987,293,445 bytes uncompressed (43 GB). The XML file with current pages, including user and talk pages, was 93,754,003,797 bytes uncompressed (93 GB). The full history dumps, all 174 files of them, took 10,005,676,791,734 bytes (10 TB).[6]

The size of the media files in Wikimedia Commons, which includes the images, videos and other media used across all the language-specific Wikipedias was described as well over 23 TB near the end of 2014.[7]

This graph is based on data from http://stats.wikimedia.org/EN/TablesArticlesTotal.htm as of 14 June 2015, with recent values for the English Wikipedia taken from the data below. The sum includes all 270+ Wikipedia languages. See the front page at http://www.wikipedia.org for a recent article count for the 10 largest Wikipedias.

The English edition remains the largest Wikipedia, slightly larger than the second largest edition, the Cebuano Wikipedia. Many other editions shared the quasi-exponential growth of the English edition, though lagging one to three years behind. As these other Wikipedias have grown, the overall percentage of articles in English has been steadily decreasing, and it fell below 25% in March 2007. The percentage of articles in the ten largest Wikipedias has also been decreasing, although these top ten still account for about 67% of all Wikipedia articles as of June 2007. Note that Lsjbot, a bot run by Sverker Johansson, is responsible for much of the growth of the second and third largest Wikipedias, the Cebuano and the Swedish Wikipedias, respectively, as well as the rapid growth of the Waray Wikipedia. The charts don't show the Cebuano, Swedish, or the Waray Wikipedias. Those three Wikipedias' article count growth primarily consists of stubs pertaining to living organisms and geographical areas.

PercentWikipediasGraph.png

Currently, the English Wikipedia makes up 11.76% of all volumes in all editions of Wikipedia. Note that this figure is updated once per hour.

The English Wikipedia's database size is approximately 26 times greater than the Cebuano Wikipedia.

Chronology of software versions[edit]

  • Phase I UseMod Wiki-based software: January 10, 2001 – January 25, 2002
  • Phase II PHP-based software: January 25, 2002 – July 20, 2002
  • Phase III PHP-based software: July 20, 2002 – present

This data set notes the fact that these figures are drawn from multiple data sources and different estimates (see the key below for details), and presents them as a spreadsheet-ready table for graphing. The original data sets are archived: see the links below. Note also that the figures are sampled at random times of day.

Hard copy size[edit]

In 2015, Michael Mandiberg published the English Wikipedia in 7473 volumes of 700 pages each via Lulu, an online e-books and print self-publishing platform, distributor, and retailer.[9]

The following graphic illustrates how big the English Wikipedia might be if the articles (without images and other multimedia content) were to be printed and bound in book form with a format similar to Encyclopædia Britannica. Each volume is assumed to be 25 cm (9.8 in) tall, 5 cm (2.0 in) thick, and containing 1,600,000 words or 8,000,000 characters. The size of this illustration is based upon the live article count.

The data set[edit]

Key to the data below:

  • approx: this figure is an approximation
  • lowerbound indicates that there were at least this many pages
  • mpac3.2: main page article count from the Phase III software following an adjustment to the count on March 29, 2015
  • mpac3.1: main page article count from the Phase III software since May 25, 2003: article namespace, not redirects, containing at least one internal wiki link
  • mpacIII: main page article count from the Phase III software up to May 22, 2003: article namespace, comma, not redirect
  • mpacII: main page article count from the Phase II software
  • spII: stats page article count from the Phase II software
  • all: total of all pages of any sort
  • commapp: pages which include a comma, a crude way of finding "real" articles
  • conscnt: "conservative count" taken by removing the count of various types of non-article from the comma page count
  • MF: Malcolm Farmer
  • LMS: Larry Sanger
  • WA: Wikipedia:Announcements

Now extended and annotated with (somewhat gnomic[disambiguation needed]) source information. Note that sampling times are only recorded to the day given by the user recording the entry, and that there is no clear time-zone information for that day.

Note: The current mpac3.2 article count for the English-language Wikipedia is 5,686,211 articles
