Research will be providing a series of baseline statistics on contributor diversity in one or more Wikimedia projects as a service to Audiences (TEC-9, Output 3.3).
They'd like to identify whether there are qualitative differences between participants of different gender and, if possible if this has any effects on their levels of participation. In particular, they'd like to answer the following questions:
- How does participation vary by project or by country?
- How does it vary by editing experience?
- How does it vary in terms of time since first edit/registration?
In order to answer those questions, Research intends to target one or more surveys to users based in their location and by their edit count, which will require QuickSurveys' targetting to be updated.
- This work impacts T201707: Output 3.3: Baseline statistics on contributor diversity / TEC9
- This work impacts Output 1.3 of Communications' Every Human FY2018-19 program
(As understood by @phuedx)
- TEC9, published 28th March, 2018, highlighted a need for "deep collaboration with teams in Audiences" (see https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Technology/Annual_Plans/FY2019/TEC9:_Address_Knowledge_Gaps#Dependences).
- @JKatzWMF pinged @ovasileva and @phuedx about this work on 1st June, 2018
- @leila pinged @JKatzWMF (and mentioned @Jdlrobson) to discuss scheduling this work for Q2 FY2018-19 on September, 13th 2018 (T201707#4581861).
- The conversation around Output 1.3 of Communications' Every Human FY2018-19 program was reinvigorated (?) by Communications in December, 2018 and then again in February, 2019.
