ASSESSING THESE REPORTS

Here are some of the conclusions for this current Quarter.

1) The 14,345 visitors came from 147 different countries, representing 3,372 different cities or towns around the world. On average, there is 1 new town represented for every 4.2 visitors. This shows a wide spread for visitors.

2) While around 66% of all visitors for this Quarter live in the U.S.A. (i.e. 9,532), those visitors are spread around in 2,506 different towns and cities in the U.S.A., spread across all 50 states. On average, there is 1 new town in the U.S.A. represented for every 3.8 visitors from the U.S.A.

3) About 99% of all articles on the wensite were accessed during this three months period.

4) The 14,345 visitors either printed out or downloaded 2,482 articles. That represents 1 article printed out or downloaded for every 5.7 visitors. Since the average length of the 337 articles on the website is 20 pages, it is desirable to have visitors print out or download the articles that are of interest to them, so that they may examine them at their own leisure. This 1:5.7 ratio shows that this is happening fairly frequently.

5) 76% of all visitors used either Chrome or Safari as their browser of choice.

6) 73% of the total number of visitors were new visitors, and 27% were returning visits.
