Interesting. Looks about right factoring in each country's population, demographic, social/economic culture.

I always find Per Capita numbers more interesting. By population China, USA and India are always on top but Per Capita gives a better idea of how productive a nations citizens actually are.

 

For example, in the last summer Olympics Jamaica had the highest medal count when you break it down per capita and USA and China score quite low per capita. It shows how much harder each Jamaican athlete had to work to reach the podium with less people behind them to support them, which is quite an impressive feat.

 

Cheers

Any way to check the complete list? Just for curiosity... (Yes, I'd love to see the stats for both Colombia and Argentina)

.............. As well as access to some of the "toys" or "entertainment" that many of us take for granted!

I'd like to see more 'English language proficiency' in here, let alone Asia.

Hello Tom,

 

If you want to know something about potential custumers per country, then your given numbers are useful. If you want to know how great the interest in Flightsimulation is in percentage of the population numbers (so less commercial interest), then I suppose the Netherlands score is remarkable. This also is a fact when you talk about : biggest harbour, biggest airport, biggest airlines, greatest investors in the USA and not least : happyist people in the world etc.

 

Meanwhile you could gess that my nationality is Dutch.

 

All the best and please continue AVSIM as you do now.

The Dutch are the happiest people in the world? ..... By jove I know some right grumpy old Dutchmen! (and I call them friends :wink:).

 

I'd say the happiest nation in the world is Bhutan , an independent Himalayan kingdom.  Because they are the only country in the world who (formally, not as a joke!) measure GDH (Gross Domestic Happiness) in place of GDP.

 

Google it if you don't believe me. :smile:

 

As for the AVSIM stats, very interesting, both Tom's total numbers and the % of capita.  They're about where I'd expect them to be, except that there always seems to be loads of Canadians on here, yet looking at the stats, there aren't as many as it appears!

 

....maybe the Canadians are just getting a bit more extrovert these days, eh?    (Ducks!)   :lol:

The top three don't surprise me at all, these are the most active communities so far in most Flight Sim forums I've been on.

Avsim users as a % of population by region (based on the top 20)

 

Oceania - 1 Avsim user per 5,152 people

North America - 1 Avsim user per 8,884 people

Europe - 1 Avsim user per 11,033 people

South America - 1 Avsim user per 56,626 people

Asia - 1 Avsim user per 308,080 people

 

What can we learn from this?

It's a lonely old road in this wonderful hobby of ours, but us people in Oceania have a better chance of bumping into somebody in a "regional" pub who enjoys this hobby.

 

More locally, if you are in Canada you have a better chance than if you are in the USA.

 

Overall masters of the top 3 users as per Tom's post? Definitely the UK with 1 Avsim user per 4,621 people compared to figures for the US of 1 Avsim user per 9,412 people. In other words, you are twice as likely to meet somebody in a UK pub who has heard of Avsim. Besides, the beer is better !!

 

But the place for a beer to discuss Avsim? That has to be Holland and Amsterdam as the Dutch simply have too much spare time on their hands at 1 Avsim user per 3,426 people   :lol: :lol:

Like I'd need an excuse to go to New Zealand :-). Just wish it wasn't so far from Europe.

Wings Over Wairarapa weekend? ;-)

 

That is the best air show I have ever seen. Nothing high tech, just World War 1 Biplanes flying in formation and dogfighting. I don't think their is any air show like that anywhere.

Interesting data. I thought Australia would have been higher on the list.

I totally agree with that comment especially since Orbx has such a priority for scenery in that region of the world.

 

Off topic but just a friendly reminder that AVSIM recently changed the signature rules and we would like to have all of your system specs and flight simulators put into the My PC profile and My Simulator profile.  I see you have the My Simulator profile done already!  More information about this new rule can be found in the topic pinned at the top of this forum and, of course, in the Signature Rules located under the Forums tab above.  Thanks for your cooperation.

 

Best regards,

My thoughts exactly, not to mention the popularity of the Ozx forum.

 

I cleared my sig and edited my profile. Thanks for the reminder!  :Doh:

I have a feeling many "Mates" have been transplanted here in the US or in other countries.  Australia is actually a very popular tourist spot.
