How can I get the statistics data of how many people ask questions and how many answer here? I'm curious about the distributions and seeing if more people ask than answer.

Using SEDE, you can run this query:

select 'questioners', count(distinct owneruserid) from posts where parentid is null and title is not null
union
select 'answerers', count(distinct owneruserid) from posts where parentid is not null

Running it for Meta Stack Exchange, I get:

  • questioners: 24035
  • answerers: 10888

Note that deleted users all have the same id: null and deleted posts are not listed in SEDE, so both of the numbers produced by the query are underestimates.
