What are the details of your request? Include relevant timelines or deadlines
@MMiller_WMF noted that "New Registered Users", as reported on Wikistats (https://stats.wikimedia.org/#/all-wikipedia-projects/contributing/new-registered-users/normal|bar|2016-07-02~2021-08-26|~total|monthly), have declined substantially in recent months (see image below). We need to understand what's behind the decrease in reported numbers:
- are declining registration numbers due to an issue with registration forms or some other part of the registration user flow?
- is this an early warning sign of declining user engagement? (note: we regularly monitor new active editors, and those numbers do not indicate cause for concern)
- is this an artifact of bugs in event logging, data pipelines, bots, or some other issue that needs to be addressed to improve the accuracy of our numbers?
How will you use this data or analysis?
To inform Product or Engineering decisions (for example, if a bug fix is needed)
Is this request urgent or time sensitive?
Yes, given potential implications
