I anticipate that you will have to field additional questions about who you
are, the purpose of your research, your methods, and your data collection
and usage practices. To anticipate these questions, I strongly suggest that
you create a page for your project in our research repository:

who is "we" in your email?
How and under which license will your results be published?

The short answer is that we ultimately want to
get a better sense of
the value of a Wikipedia pageview (one way to measure the impact of
content creation), and one way to do this is to understand how people
are using Wikipedia. We're working on creating Wikipedia content (and
encouraging others to do so) and in order to identify the best
content to create, we'd like to better understand what the metrics
Wikipedia allows relatively easy access to pageview data, and there
are some surveys that provide demographic data. However, after
looking around, it appeared that the kind of information our survey
was designed to find was not available. The two surveys we found
(that we found interesting but didn't cover the questions we were
interested in) were https://web.archive.org/web/20130717211630/http:/
/wikipediastudy.org/ and https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commo
Finally, there is just plain curiosity that makes us wonder how
people are using Wikipedia.
