Graphs of Cumulative Growth

Graph of WikiTree Cumulative Profile Count, 2019-10-23


To understand WikiTree's current growth rate,

  • WikiTree is currently adding approximately 3 million profiles each year, or around 8220 per day.

This should be examined within the larger context of the number of people currently being added to the population. In any reasonable context, WikiTree is quickly falling behind:

  • Number of births in the United States in the year 2017: 3,855,500.[2]
  • Number of births in Canada in the year 2016: 383,102.[3]
  • Number of births each day, globally in 2019: 395,072.[1]
