Analysis from past fundraising campaigns

Data from 2008 suggests that some countries raise more money per 1000 visitors than others.

Fundraising campaign may have large potential to grow given that some countries raise more money per 1000 visitors than others; questions remain about what drives differences (e.g., culture, perception of Wikipedia, etc.)

Note that this graph combines two data sources: ComScore visitor data by country for December 2008 (not publicly available due to agreements with ComScore, though some country-specific data available here), and data from the 2008 fundraising campaign.
