NUMBEROF shows statistics for a language.project (eg. en.wikipedia, cs.wikiquote, commons, etc.). Statistics update every 6 hours, except for your local wiki (wikidata) which are real-time.

Projects tracked include:

  • *.wikipedia
  • *.wikisource
  • *.wikibooks
  • *.wikiquote
  • *.wikivoyage
  • *.wikinews
  • *.wikiversity
  • *.wiktionary
  • wikidata
  • meta
  • commons
  • foundation
  • wikimania
  • wikitech

Statistics are available for:

  • Total Articles (main-space pages)
  • Total Pages (articles + redirects + talk etc)
  • Total Users (ever registered)
  • Total Active Users (recently active)
  • Total Edits
  • Total Files (images)
  • Total Admins
  • Total for any of the above across all Wikipedia languages


There are 2 required parameters, and an optional third:

  • First parameter: articles, pages, edits, users, activeusers, admins or files
  • Second parameter (lang.project): en.wikipedia, en.wikiquote, commons, etc.. if there is no ".<project_name>" it defaults to .wikipedia thus en or uk are acceptable shortcuts
  • Third parameter: If not empty (such as 'N') it will add a comma. For example "1000" becomes "1,000". For Wikis that use non-Latin digits, 'N' will also display numbers in the native script.


To show the number of articles of the French Wikipedia in format raw:

  • {{NUMBEROF|articles|fr}} → 2605097

To show the number of pages on Commons with comma:

  • {{NUMBEROF|pages|commons|N}} → 137,988,930


Totals for first parameter stats (articles, pages, edits, users, activeusers, admins or files) are available in three types: totalactive, totalclosed and total (ie. totalactive + totalclosed). "Active" or "closed" indicate the status of the Wikipedia, as some wikis are no longer active, but old stats are still available.

To show the total of all active sites, on wikipedia, for pages:

  • {{NUMBEROF|pages|totalactive.wikipedia|N}} → 261,225,871

There is also a special total.all which is all projects (eg. wikipedia, wikiquote) that are active or closed.

  • {{NUMBEROF|pages|total.all|N}} → 619,662,480

Meta statistics[edit]

Information about the number of Wiki sites is available. Three types of stats: active, closed and languages (ie. active + closed).

  • {{NUMBEROF|languages|wikipedia}} → 339
  • {{NUMBEROF|active|wikiquote}} → 73
  • {{NUMBEROF|closed|wikiquote}} → 23

This allows for creating dynamic sentences for example: As of {{CURRENTMONTHNAME}} {{CURRENTYEAR}} there are {{NUMBEROF|languages|wikipedia}} Wikipedia sites of which {{NUMBEROF|active|wikipedia}} are active and {{NUMBEROF|closed|wikipedia}} are closed. which produces: "As of April 2024 there are 339 Wikipedia sites of which 326 are active and 13 are closed."


Site rankings are available. See {{Wikipedia rank by size}}


Depth is available. Example:

  • {{NUMBEROF|depth|fr}} → 262

See meta:Wikipedia article depth for the meaning of depth.
