The MIA keeps growing in it's influence, size and, number of people
visiting it. This is a sampling of the statistical breakdown of some aspects of
what people are interesting in with regards to Marxism. Our statistical
software was written by http://www.mrunix.net/webalizer/ in collaboration with
the MIA and is available for free, as is everything on the MIA.

The total statistical story is available at marx.org/admin/intro click on 'serve
stats' for the whole story and the last 12 months.

It is interesting what people search for, how many hits, etc. All these stats
are open to question, which should be obvious to anyone familiar with web
access stats. Still, it gives us a flavor of the popularity of Marxism on the
Internet.
