Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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'm just curious if there is such a statistic available anywhere?

If you know the query, you could use the Query site

You could sum the number of upvotes and group that by hour. That would give a rough image of the reputation given.

A good statistic would then create a different list of if it's a question or an answer being upvoted and multiply the number by the reputation it gives, and then look at the downvotes and reduce the number by those results.

Here's a naive query. You could take those results and plot them.

SELECT YEAR(CreationDate), MONTH(CreationDate), DAY(CreationDate), COUNT(Id) 
GROUP BY​ YEAR(CreationDate), MONTH(CreationDate), DAY(CreationDate)
ORDER BY YEAR(CreationDate), MONTH(CreationDate), DAY(CreationDate)​

I ran it and charted it for you, just if you were curious.
