Wikipedia research dumps by Libresoft

Based on research by Felipe Ortega, who has been studying the change records of Wikipedia for some years, and has performed some of the most comprehensive quantitative analysis on how main parameters (number of autors, number of changes, number of new articles, etc.) are evolving over time.

Wikipedia research dumps have been created using WikiXRay, our tool to automate the analysis of any language version of Wikipedia. These are compressed mysqldump files, that can be easily loaded again on any local database for research purposes.
