Wikipedia topic distribution[edit]

Hey everyone, I'm finishing the process of going through the article Wikipedia, and have one issue that I can't seem to solve. "Coverage of topics and systemic bias" discusses the distribution of topics on Wikipedia using data from a 2008 research study. I would like to bring this section up to date, but can't find anything on this topic past the 2008 study; JSTOR, ResearchGate, Google Scholar, Taylor & Francis, and were the databases I checked, and nothing came up. I do not have access to the Wikipedia Library due to the age of my account (5 months and 17 days, so close...) and therefore cannot check there. I put this up on the talk page last week but received no responses. Can you find anything related to this topic? Thank you! MyCatIsAChonk (talk) 04:24, 4 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You could look and see who posted those stats in 2008 or whenever, and if that user or users are still active you could ask them for advice. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 09:20, 4 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
