  • Symbol support vote.svg Support, I disagree with Andyhas parts of the class (P2670) is not flexible enough for this kind of data. For example, a statement can be qualified further with date, which is a very important part of data. (Qualifying the has parts of the class (P2670) statement with the date is semantically incorrect: it means that at that point, this Wikipedia contained articles; it may contain kittens or countries or anything else tomorrow.) Actually the properties mentioned there are (except for number of households (P1538)) static values, which don’t change over time, so a qualifier is more sufficient for them than for Wikipedia articles. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 21:46, 10 January 2019 (UTC)
    • Re semantic accuracy: I don't think that's correct. Date qualifiers qualify the whole statement including other qualifiers. --Yair rand (talk) 03:07, 18 February 2019 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting question.svg Question Is it necessary to have this information 'statically' in Wikidata? Isn't an information available via the API? (I wonder if someone will update this information frequently how it would affect the history of the object) --Sabas88 (talk) 21:15, 14 January 2019 (UTC)
