Welcome to the Database analysis WikiProject, a collaboration area and group of editors dedicated to supporting general maintenance tasks and other WikiProjects that make use of lists generated through analysis of the Wikipedia database (XML) dumps.

(For more information on WikiProjects, please see Wikipedia:WikiProject and the Guide to WikiProjects).

Goals
  • Improve collaboration between the various individuals and groups that already perform such analysis and update such lists.
Scope
  • Any task or project that involves the creation of lists based on analysis of the Wikipedia database dumps.

Recent analyses[edit]

Open tasks[edit]

A few suggestions to start us off

  • Link to (or create) resources to help folks set up their own local copies of the Wikipedia database for the purposes of offline analysis
  • Suggest analysis work that could potentially improve Wikipedia and related projects
  • Provide (primarily technical) support for those doing database analysis
