Hey, everybody! The final project for my statistics class is coming up: we have to do analysis on some real world data, and I figured that as long as I would do it I might as well be of some use to someone, so I'm here to ask the WFG community what numbers they would like to see analyzed!
Obviously I'm far from an expert in statistics, but even an elementary analysis might prove useful, and help give some concrete answers to a lot of questions I see new webfic writers asking around these forums. Some basic ideas I've been kicking around with my partners are the average traffic a web fiction writer gets and a breakdown of where that traffic comes from, or perhaps a look at the revenue a work generates compared to its average chapter length/update frequency/length of time it's been publicly available/etc.
There's definitely a lot of data to gather, let alone parse, but I'm genuinely hopeful that something useful might come out of this. Right now I'm just checking for interest, and perhaps for a few indications of what metrics people are interested in providing/analyzing. If anyone has comments or suggestions, feel free to say them.
