I promised this a while back. Here’s the data from the Okazu Reader Survey. I’ve left out the specifiv qualitative responses, because I want to collate them a bit before giving you a list of your own top sources. In the meantime, enjoy!

Those bar graphs got cut off!
Assuming a bunch of viewers aren’t impersonating as girls, wow about 70% of girls reads this.
You just made my statistician’s soul WEEP. I know the “key analytics” section is probably turned on by default and you just didn’t bother to turn it off, but still… ouch. And why not do something interesting like cross gender by sexual orientation (ie, check to see how many males were straight/bi/gay and how many females were straight/bi/gay)?
david – because I am not a statistician and do not care – especially about the gender and sexuality of my readers. :)
My goal was to keep it simple and get a broad overview of my audience.
I think I was the only SOuth African on that whole pole. What a sad and lonely thing! ^_^
Of course the only peeps who do read this blog are the Englishspeaking ones. Now if there’s a way to make multiple translations we might get some interesting results on the international scale!
Though that would be tough.
There are other countries than the US that have English as their main language. And, Okazu is translated into Spanish. It’s possible that if it were translated into Japanese and Chinese we could shift the ratings, but just as likely that it wouldn’t significantly change anything. :)
