What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 128 Stack Exchange communities.

Like anyone, I'm interested in numbers (statistics). I would like to know the number of questions posted in Stack Overflow per day. If possible, how the numbers are growing/changing?

If we have this trend, we can even see the developer migrations between different languages/frameworks.

This can be applied to other Stack Exchange sites as well.

5,378 questions per day on average over the last two weeks.

If you are interested in monitoring trends, you can use the API's /info, monitor questions_per_minute and answers_per_minute, and build some awesome graphs ;) Right now it reports:
