For 2015's topic, please see:
Where YWSers came from in 2015

So where did YWSers come from in 2016? Not only did they come from every corner of the globe, but even South America finally got in the game! South America never shows up on YWS!

TOP 10 CITIES
1. London
2. Columbus, Ohio
3. New York City
4. Sydney
5. Los Angeles
6. Chicago
7. Atlanta
8. New Delhi
9. Houston
10. Dublin

The top 10 cities hasn't changed too much from last year, although there has been shuffling. London moved back into the number 1 spot, and San Francisco, which dominated last year due to a large number of odd one-time visits, fell to #37.

Columbus enters the list for the first time this year at number two, while Melbourne and Kuala Lumpur have fallen from 9 and 10, respectively, to 11 and 19.


TOP 10 COUNTRIES
1. United States
2. United Kingdom
3. India
4. Australia
5. Canada
6. Philippines
7. Ireland
8. Malaysia
9. Bangladesh
10. France

India has replaced Canada as the #3 country on YWS while Canada has fallen to #5. Meanwhile, New Zealand has fallen from #10 to #14 and is thus no longer in the top 10. Taking its place is Bangladesh.

For those curious what comes before New Zealand, it's Pakistan (#11), Norway (#12), and Japan (#13).


COUNTRIES WITH ZERO VISITS
- North Korea
- Mali
- Niger
- Burkina Faso
- South Sudan
- Western Sahara (not really a country...)

Dropping off this list from last year are Chad and the Central African Republic, which both scored a grand total of 1 visit. Entering this list this year is Burkina Faso.


BROWSER USAGE
Image

Internet Explorer usage continues to decline. In 2015, it was 7.3% with Edge included. In 2016, only 5.58% of users used it.

Sadly, Firefox (my favorite browser) is also declining from 15% in 2015 to 8.72% in 2016. Chrome increased from 51% to 57.57%, and Safari was essentially unchanged.

In Canada's defence, Canadian YWSers seem to be exploring the rest of the world lately. XP (@Lavvie, we want you baaack)
I hope it's a good joke because otherwise I'll have got it for nothing...

Awesome, Japan hit 13th. :D

Man, I wish I was still in the Ohio area. All you Columbus people should definitely have a meetup or something. :P

I'd love to see a close-up of the middle east please, if that were possible... also ayyy Dublin represent!
Because I could not stop for Death,
He kindly stopped for me;
The carriage held but just ourselves
And Immortality.

Where are all my NC YWSers? Now that I have confirmation of your existence, you can't hide! :p

This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

I actually did meet @ChocolateCello and we played D&D at a library multiple times! (Remember, kids, meet in a public location. Also, tell people where you're going, because you never know who might be an axe murderer.)

Unfortunately, I'm living in Florida for the next four months and then I'm moving to Tennessee D: So I shall no longer be representing Ohio, much to my displeasure.

All you Ohio people out there, keep on pushing your way to number one! :P

I'm now distinctly curious to know who else in my state propelled it to #10, because I don't think I frequent the site enough to have accomplished it single-handedly. :P
S'io credesse che mia risposta fosse
a persona che mai tornasse al mondo,
questa fiamma staria senza piu scosse.
Ma per ciò che giammai di questo fondo
non tornò vivo alcun, s'i' odo il vero,
senza tema d'infamia ti rispondo.

Where did all the Ohio people come from??? I used YWS from Ohio for like 6 years and was so alone XD I'd be interested to know how that trend came about.
Got YWS?
