Gamerati Population Distribution

analytics-map-global-1280x720

Anyone that runs an analytics program estimate how many people visit a particular website. They can even get an idea of which country, or region of a country, those people come from. However, since most sites don’t merge their statistics under a unified analytics engine, they have no way of determining if Joe Gamer from Iowa goes to multiple sites. And if he does, they’d have no way of accounting for this, should they want to combine statistics to estimate gamer population (at least the online portion).

Because we manage the advertisements on a number of great gaming websites, we’re able to see a similar set of information as a website owner. However, because all those ads are served from a central server, we’re also able to get a unique perspective on gamer populations, accounting for unique visitors across multiple sites. So, when Joe Gamer visits multiple sites on our network, we can account for this and only count him once, if we want to estimate unique visitors across the network without double-counting.

According to Google, here’s a list of the gamer populations in the United States. All numbers are for unique individuals over the course of a calendar month.
