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

I'd like to get some statistics, anonymized, about the StackExchange userbase--at this point, mainly where people are located, but eventually other information.

Is this possible?

Stack Exchange has a service called the Data Explorer that allows you to run SQL queries against public data from SE sites. It includes the location attribute for users.
