This article or section documents the current version of Scratch (version 2.0). For this article in Scratch 1.4, see Scratch Statistics (1.4).
The top part of the Scratch Statistics page.

The Scratch 2.0 statistics page was released on October 15, 2013[1] and displays a wide variety of stats solely related to Scratch. It shows statistics from the beginning of Scratch in May 2007 to the present day. There are a total of seven statistics trends or charts displayed on the page. One particular feature is the ability to click or rollover on a specific point on the graph and see the values of the data in that particular point or time. Most of the data taken in at account creation go solely towards statistics.

Monthly Activity Trends

Mouse rollover information.

This graph shows data of how many projects, users, and comments are posted monthly onto the Scratch website. The graph shows intervals of eight months, dating back to May 2007. However, the line graph still displays accurate data between each interval for the lengthy time period not specifically labeled.

Monthly Active Users

This line graph displays data about how many users are active monthly on the Scratch website, using the eight-month intervals the other graphs have. The graph is divided into two lines: project creators and comment creators.

Age Distribution of New Scratchers

This bar graph displays the number of Scratchers of each particular age at their time of registration, ranging from 0 to 80 years. The age with the most registrations is 12, followed closely by 11.

Scratchers Worldwide

The distribution of Scratchers worldwide. The mouse is over the island São Tomé and Príncipe, causing an infobox about it to show on the left upper corner.

This particular data is displayed as a Mercator projection of the globe, with various shades depicting the amount of Scratchers in a particular area. The Scratchers of Greenland and Antarctica are shown as a separate country, while Western Sahara is shown as part of Morocco.

The more scratchers a country has, the darker it is shaded in the map, thus countries with high population are often shaded darker while countries with smaller population or a low number of scratchers are shown more lightly colored. On mouseover, information about the country's name, the number of Scratchers in this country and the percentage of these Scratchers on the total number of Scratchers are shown. The United States, with 47% of Scratchers coming from there, is the country with the most Scratchers. Many scratchers choose Antarctica as their home country, but because nobody is native to the continent the number of Scratchers shows as 0.

There is a bug that causes the info box to flicker when the mouse moves over a country. The cause is unknown.

Monthly Project Shares

This graph displays the number of monthly projects that are shared onto the Scratch website. The data is divided into two sections: "New Projects", which show projects that were created without remixing, and "Remix Projects", which are projects remixed from other projects. This graph can be viewed in either a stacked, stream, or expanded form.

Monthly Comment Activity

The monthly comment activity.

This graph displays the number of monthly comments and their types posted onto the Scratch website. The data is divided among project, studio, and profile comments. This graph can be viewed in either a stacked, stream or expanded view.

Scratch Block Usage

The Scratch Block Usage.

This graph displayed how frequently various Scratch blocks are used, based on a random sample. This information was displayed in a pictograph where the more frequently a Scratch block is used, the larger its corresponding pictograph block was. Each pictograph block was colored according to the category of its corresponding block, and clicking on a category of blocks allowed for zooming in and out on the category.

This graph is no longer available.

Data Date Information

At the bottom-right of each graph, there is a small "i" (for "information") which will display the date the shown data was retrieved. The statistics page is updated at times, and the date the information was retrieved provides the validity of the data to the present.
