What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 129 Stack Exchange communities.

I wanted to know more about where in the world Stack Overflow users come from.

Is there any way I could get more data for this?
Are there any more maps or charts to further identify where users are coming from across the world?
How could I go about generating my own maps or charts?

I ran this query to gather data on all Stack Overflow users with over 1000 reputation.

That got a total of 4,711 unique locations for 48,924 users. Of those 48,924 users, 13,138 did not list a location. Of the remaining 35,786 users, I manually inputted the country for 28,490 (almost 80%), which is the 437 most input locations, and also all locations with over 10 users reporting it.

In the spirit of the original, I generated both the raw user count, and the per capita (using population data from Gap Minder which I already had compiled elsewhere).

Top 10 Lists

By User Count

  1. United States (9,592)
  2. United Kingdom (2,906)
  3. India (2,005)
  4. Germany (1,461)
  5. Canada (1,397)
  6. Australia (1,260)
  7. France (724)
  8. Sweden (637)
  9. Russian Federation (447)
  10. Poland (439)

By Per Capita Usage (per million population)

  1. New Zealand (70.8)
  2. Sweden (70.4)
  3. Australia (61.2)
  4. Norway (58.3)
  5. Israel (57.7)
  6. Ireland (48.1)
  7. United Kingdom (47.7)
  8. Denmark (47.2)
  9. Switzerland (45.4)
  10. Estonia (42.8)

Note: The following charts are done through automatic searching of state abbreviations and names from the full data set of over 1000 users. It is therefore prone to errors. It is also set on a different scale.

The following code will create a google geochart of the data with some interactivity. To figure out how to play with it, feel free to check out (I hear folks are helpful over in that tag):

Disclaimer: There may be errors and stuff. Probably are. C'est la vie. Probably not indicative of where actual users unless users who do not share location are distributed the same as the users who do share location which I would find unlikely due to national identity and privacy concerns. This is only for SO, not for SU or the other sites. Your mileage may vary. Void where prohibited by law. Only valid in the continental 48 states. Speaking of states, I didn't even take a shot at recording users by state in the US. Sorry! But you can give it a shot.

@benisuǝqbackwards She left Germany, went over to Denmark, crossed the water, went to Sweden, cut back to Wales, then up to Ireland, then she jumped into the water, swam away, and we lost her. Sorry. source –  jmac Sep 26 '13 at 6:21

Is it just me, or does the data dump look very chunky? –  Jeffrey Lin Sep 27 '13 at 1:42
    
@Jeff It is chunky. Being a non-programmer, I did all my work in Excel. Rather than provide it on a zillion lines, I just quoted and comma separated user location and coded location, and then put a semi-colon between each entry so you can parse it with whatever language you want. If you would like it in a different format, you could upload it to Google Spreadsheets or the like to make it more accessible. –  jmac Sep 27 '13 at 1:50
    
@jmac I added some more sup and sub tags to make it smaller and searchable, but it got a bit too small. –  Jeffrey Lin Sep 27 '13 at 19:54
