API Analytics - page views by country
Open, LowPublic

Description

Based on this discussion:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Village_pump_(technical)#Page_view_stats_per_country?

Would be possible to add an API call for page views per country. Understand there are privacy concerns with low page view counts. Understand there may be resource constraints.

Even generally, or within certain blocks like 50,000-100,000.

This sort of metric data is invaluable for end users tracking usages geographically, which has many applications.

Thank you for looking at it!

We only release pageview per country aggregated per project, not per article:

fdans moved this task from Incoming to Smart Tools for Better Data on the Analytics board.

And this is the task for the ongoing effort to expose per article country data.
