Australia related articles as a proportion of total Wikipedia articles, by month.

By way of comparison, Australia's population represents about 0.32% of the world population.

Note that systematic and wide scale tagging of Australia related articles did not start until early 2007. Percentages before then are less meaningful, and included here for interest rather than comparative purposes. In March 2008 a project to find untagged categories and associated articles was run by bot.
