You mean "editing" versus "reading" traffic?

Marcel is totally right! If you want to do one
off analyses for
specific pages or namespaces though(like browser breakdown for namespace
User: on enwiki - main namespace may not be possible), that may be possible
if you run some queries in our Hive store. Do you have access to
stat1002(analytics-privatedata-users group)? If not you can request access
as per https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Analytics/Cluster/Access
and we can help you run some one off calculations.
