    Forum Demographics

    I've been really curious about this since I got on this forum, so here it comes out. I've always thought that the popularity of cricket is waning among the non-subcontinental nations (excepting Australia, perhaps). So I'd like to know the demographic of this forum. (If you choose others, please specify).

    Edit: maybe some of you are not clear what I meant by "western" country. This includes:

    WI
    NZ
    Aus
    Eng
    SA

    So 33/3from3.3 you'd fall under the first category, not the 5th.

    The large majority of members here would be English and Australian, and there's quite a few kiwis.

    When it comes to fourm demographics there is a large majority from Australia, New Zealand and England. The is a rapid increase from what i've noticed from North America, with most supporting India and Pakistan it seems. There is a decent amount of posters from India and Pakistan, but it seems half the supports of those countries are from North America on this forum.

    The fourm does lack users from South Africa, Sri Lanka, West Indies, Zimbabwe, Bangladesh.

    On the issue of lack popularity of cricket is waning among the non-subcontinental nations, excepting Australia. I don't really think this is a case just that a lot supporters of cricket in those countries support other sports, which means they might spend a little less time analzying and talking cricket, on a fourm such as this. In terms of crowds, the ones in England and South Africa seem pretty good. Well see in the Windies next month. NZ has been down, but its been like that for a while, if not forever. Cricket will always be the 2nd to Rugby over there.

    I think you'd find that it's down to the amount of people who have internet access in those countries is quite small.

    I would have thought West Indies and South Africa been quite high in internet access. I could understand Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Zimbabwe.

    I'm lucky to be one of those 7.4% of South Africans to have internet access.
