English-Corpora.org


Data from Google Analytics (see below for March 2022) shows that the corpora from English-Corpora.org are used by about 75,000 unique people each month (i.e. if a person uses one corpus 10 times in a month, another corpus 6 times, and a third corpus 4 times, that would count as just "one" person). We are not aware of any other corpus site that has even half as many users as English-Corpora.org.

Note that starting in mid-2020, people had to log in to use the corpora. So while the data from 2019 showed significantly more users, our log files show that more than half of those users in 2019 were "Guests", who had not logged in. In terms of registered users who have logged in, there is an increase in users from Oct 2019 to Mar 2022 (about 30 months), from about 60,000 to 75,000 distinct users per month.

The users come from all over the world. For example, the following table shows the countries that had the most distinct users in the twelve months from April 2021 to Mar 2022. Remember that this is a count of distinct registered users (since Google Analytics now counts only those who have logged in with their account, and does not count "Guest" users, as we did back in 2019). So if the chart shows 10,000 users from a particular country, those are 10,000 distinct researchers / students who logged in during this period from that country. You can also see more detailed information on researchers by country.
