@minimining and @brittandjosie have both recently purchased physical maps to pin where their followers are from, which I thought was a really cool idea but also had me thinking, where are all the active steemians from. I'm sure many of you have also gave it a thought now and then.
So not to sit on my arse, I thought let me see If I could kick it up a notch and find out where active Steemians are from. I enlisted the help of the ever regal and helpful @paulag to provide me with a data dump of active steemians for the past two months.
How to qualify for the report
- You need to have made at least 1 post between 1 November 2018 - 31 December 2018
- You need to fill in the location field with a city or country for me to track and categorize
Diving into the data
Since no one really uses the location field the same way the data was really dirty and took me a while and to push my excel skills to their limits to clean it up.
The raw data dump from @paulag gave me a total of 38 478 active accounts in the 2 month period and after cleaning the data I was left with 17 447 accounts that I could match to locations.
So What did I find according to the data I happend to clean you mau ask?
It looks like Asia leads the way with 32.7% active users followed by Europe with 22.6%
The break down is as follows:
- Asia - 32.7%
- Europe - 22.6%
- South America - 18.4%
- North America - 17.2%
- Africa - 7%
- Oceania - 2.1%
What are the top countries
So the best performing countries across all regions combined are:
- USA - 14.4%
- Venezuela - 13.9%
- Indonesia - 8.5%
- India - 5.8%
- Nigeria - 4.7%

Key points from the report
- Only 45% of active Steemians reveal their location on their profile
- Africa seriously needs to get on board with blockchain
- Venezuela and the USA are neck and neck for the most popular users
Thought I'd give it some steemit style
After creating the report I thought well hey this doesn't look very steemit'y and I happend to find the branding guide in @coruscate What Do You Think of the New Steem Digital Assets? and jazzed it up with the logo and colour scheme. What you think? Snazzy? I'm not the type to make my reports pretty but I do try.
Have your say
What do you think of your countries performance? Are you surprised by any of the results? Would you like to see any other cool reports? Let me know!
