Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Is there a way to find out the users with the highest reputation, in a given location? For example, I want to know who is the highest-ranking user in Argentina. It'd be interesting to find out the reputation distribution as a function of location.

The locations have, for the most part, been normalized against yahoo's map engine, so you should be able to use a data exchange query to get what you need: – Adam Davis Dec 4 '11 at 0:30
I'm not familiar with stack exchange's data model, could you provide an example of a query involving location/reputation, please? – Óscar López Dec 4 '11 at 0:36
Use the search box on to find some predefined queries like this one. The only caveat to all of these searches is that the users are not required to set their location, and the system does not automatically fill that field in. – jonsca Dec 4 '11 at 0:52

Users by location, with a minimum reputation

Which country are the users from?

I think this queries are outdated! – aF. May 8 '12 at 11:07
@aF. Probably yes, in which sense? Can you update them? – bluish May 8 '12 at 11:50
For instance, my reputation is kinda old (but I don't know from when). I can't update since I don't know this database. – aF. May 8 '12 at 11:57
I put in location "Dublin" (which is my location in my profile) and I hit run query with minimum reputation 1, It did not show my name there. I dont know if I put in some wrong parameter or the script is buggy, can you confirm? – Mukul Goel Oct 12 '13 at 17:24
