A seventh year begins for the "Séries temporelles" blog, and as usual, it is an opportunity to review its audience, and to get a little self-satisfaction. We usually publish this post early January, but it seems there was no January this year (or was I too busy ?). The blog is still receiving more visits every year, with a sharp growth this year : +35% of visits ...
So, if we look at the trends on the plots above, the audience growth is remarkably linear, but if we sum-up everything per year, we see a sharp increase. The cause is that outlier in the top-right corner or each graph above, related to a big buzz in Japan for SImon's article about Xe-Namnoy lake dam failure in July, that flooded several villages, and killed too many people.

French visitors only counted for 25% of visits, much less than the other years. Japan ranked second with 16%, United States ranked third, followed by European countries (UK, Germany, Italy, Spain) and by India, Canada and Morocco.
