Here is some information about the country of residence of the visitors of jref.com (whole site) as well as forum members.

JREF Forum Members by country of residence

Note that some members have not chosen any country, or might have chosen a fake country. These stats do not show the nationality, but teh country where members claim to live. Only countries with at least 10 members are listed (some might be missing).

By Continent

Africa (Total : 22 or 0.5% => the total only include countries with at least 10 members)

Morocco : 10
Nigeria : 12

Americas (Total : 1,189 - 27%)

United States : 512
Canada : 477
Mexico : 63
Brazil : 56
Chile : 37
Argentina : 28
Colombia : 16

Asia (Total : 1,510 - 34%)

Japan : 596
Singapore : 183
Malaysia : 173
Philippines : 119
China : 111 (including HK : 8)
Indonesia : 108
Thailand : 74
India : 64
Vietnam : 40
Taiwan : 19
Pakistan : 13
South Korea : 10

Europe & Middle East (Total : 1,425 - 32%)

Germany : 189
Sweden : 186
United Kingdom : 179
France : 173
Spain : 107
Netherlands : 101
Italy : 101

Oceania (Total : 299 - 6.5%)

Australia : 288
New Zealand : 11

Grand Total : 4,445 out of a real total of 12,601 members; the difference is due to small countries not listed and especially members who have not chosen a country of residence. This means that only 1/3 of the Forum members are counted in these statistics. For example, only 2,187 members specified whether they were male or female (60% male and 40% female).

Top 20 countries of residence for Forum (= 86% of total)

1) Japan : 596 (13.5%)
2) United States : 512 (11.5%)
3) Canada : 477 (10.7%)
4) Australia : 288 (6.5%)
5) Germany : 189 (4.3%)
6) Sweden : 186 (4.2%)
7) Singapore : 183 (4,1%)
8) United Kingdom : 179 (4%)
9) France : 173 (3.9%)
-) Malaysia : 173 (3.9%)
11) Philippines : 119 (2.7%)
12) China : 111 (2,5%)
13) Indonesia : 108 (2.4%)
14) Spain : 107 (2.4%)
15) Netherlands : 101 (2.3%)
-) Italy : 101 (2.3%)
17) Norway : 81 (1.8%)
18) Thailand : 74 (1.7%)
19) Poland : 65 (1.5%)
20) India : 64 (1.5%)

I am amazed at the proportion of Swedish, Singaporian and Malaysian members, given that these countries are not very populous (9m, 4.5m and 26m, respectively). If we look at the native English-speakers population, the UK should have more members than any other country but the US.


Jref.com visitors by country according to IP address

These stats are for year 2005 (January to 8th July) only. Note that many IP address cannot be identified ('Unknown') and many European IP are just listed as 'European Union', which falses the statistics for individual countries. If we made the total of all EU countries, it would rank 2nd after the US, both for pageviews and hits.

Top 25 by pageviews (=hits on different pages)

1) United States
2) Australia
3) (European Union)
4) Japan
5) (Unknown)
6) Belgium
7) Canada
8) Great Britain
9) Singapore
10) Italy
11) Germany
12) South Korea
13) Mexico
14) Netherlands
15) Sweden
16) Hong Kong
18) Thailand
19) France

Here are more stats. Based on the forum members who have entered their birth year, here is the forum age pyramid (and it really is a pyramid, which shows we are still a developing country... I mean forum :p ).

Under 15 : 81 (2.2%)
15 to 19 : 1152 (31.5%)
20 to 24 : 979 (26.8%)
25 to 29 : 612 (16.8%)
30 to 34 : 328 (9%)
35 to 39 : 194 (5.3%)
40 to 44 : 117 (3.2%)
45 to 49 : 72 (2%)
50 to 54 : 46 (1.3%)
55 to 60 : 32 (0.9%)
61 to 75 : 28 (0.8%)
Over 75 : 11 (0.3%)

Total = 3,652. Only about 1/4 of the members specified their age.

What are you talking about ? The Dutch only make up 2.3% of JREF's members.
