My How We Have Grown:

2000 – 2003

How Often Do Readers Visit the Report Website?

The tables below provide information for all visitors to the Report web pages (subscribers and non-subscribers) from 2002 to present, based on web server log files. We filter out the visits by our own staff to make the figures more meaningful.

On average the report has 301 unique visits a day with a total of 83,909 visits between February 2002 and April 30, 2003. The average duration of a visit is eleven minutes. In our analysis, a unique visit consists of a series of one or more page views by the same computer with no more than a 30 minute gap between page requests. So, if you visited the Report website, looked at a few pages, and then went off for an hour lunch break, when you return from lunch, if you look at more pages from the Report, you will have started a second visit according to our stats.

Here's a look at our website traffic patterns over time.

The charts above and below indicate that we have seen relatively steady growth in web site traffic since February 2002. For the one-year period of February 2002 - February 2003 the number of unique visits rose by 99% (okay, more or less it doubled...) from 3,628 to 7,225. The slight decline in the number of visits in June and July 2002 could be due to the fact that our major target audience - university/college students, staff, and faculty are on summer break during this period. We know for sure the decrease in traffic from October to November 2002 was due to a large number of web server crashes in early November. Since December 2002 there has been a steady increase in traffic.

What Does it All Mean?

In summary, our data indicates that in the last three years we have seen a 227% increase in the number of people subscribing to the Report, or approximately 75% growth per year. The composition of the subscribers with respect to their role on university/college campuses and the most common types of CR handling experience has stayed relatively stable. The number of unique visits to the Report's web site has doubled in the last year. Our readers come from all over the world but the vast majority of them come from North America. Representing about 700 different institutions, just under 20% of all readers are based at a higher education institution within the United States.

So, things are looking good here at the Report. We do hope you'll share the Report with others, and if you haven't yet subscribed, we hope that you will do so soon. Then our next snap shot of readers can be even better. Thanks for reading the Report.
