Human vs Bot Edits per Class in Wikidata

NOTE. This dashboard has moved to https://wikidata-analytics.wmcloud.org/app/WD_HumanEdits. Please update your bookmarks. This service will be discontinued.

Welcome to the Human vs Bot Edits per Class in Wikidata dashboard. This dashboard presents an overview of Human vs Bot editing in Wikidata. The source of the data are the Wikidata JSON dump copy in the WMF Data Lake (see: wmf.wikidata_entity table), and the Wikidata MediaWiki revision history (see: wmf.mediawiki_history table). All reported statistics refer to Wikidata classes.
We first study the revision history of Wikidata and count the number of edits per item, per class. Then we derive the percent of items that were ever touched by a human editor per class, the ratio of human to bot edits per class, the median number of unique human editors per class, and other statistics as well. All of them are reported in the table below the charts on this page. The legends below each chart are there to help their interpreation.
Note. The counts of item edits across the classes are not cumulative in a sense of counting across all the members of the class' subclasses (i.e. "item in class" here means P31 (Instance Of) exclusively)

The distribution of the Human to Bot ratio statistic across the Wikidata classes. The horizontal axis represents the logarithm of the human to bot ratio: the number of human edits divided by the number of bot edits in the respective Wikidata class. Because we use logarithmic scaling, any value of this statistics lower than zero - indicated by a dashed, vertical line in the chart - represents a human to bot ratio lesser than one, i.e. classes with a higher number of bot edits relative to human edits. Wikidata classes where there were no human or no bot edits at all are exluded.

The distribution of the Median Unique Human Editors per Wikidata Class. The statistic is calculated as following: we first count the number of unique human editors for each Wikidata item, and then take the median of that number in each Wikidata class. The distribution of the median number of unique human editors per class is then binned and represented in the logarithmic space on this chart. The point labels report the bins alongside the exact counts.

The Distribution of the Proportion of Human Edits per Wikidata Class. This is the distribution of HumanEdits/(HumanEdits + BotEdits) per Wikidata class. The value ranges between 0 and 1.

The Distribution of Edits per Wikidata Class. This is the distribution of Total Edits == Human Edits + Bot Edits per Wikidata class. The distributin is first binned across the hand-picked (pseudo-logarithmic) intervals and then charted as it is. The data point labels indicate the number of Wikidata classes falling in the bin represented on the horizontal axis.
