#Wikipedia usage data is more complete

When you compile #statistics about the usage of Wikipedia, you need raw data to base your statistics on. The data was not complete and consequently the resulting statistics can be a little bit off.
Ariel Glenn on Wikitech-l "I think we finally have a complete copy from December 2007 through August 2011 of the pageview stats scrounged from various sources, now available on our dumps server."
Having more complete data will probably not change the understanding of the Wikipedia history that much. As Wikipedia celebrated its 10th anniversary, there is obviously more data that is missing. We do welcome any and all data that gives us even more of an insight.
