The ultimate outcome will be a public suite of statistics and data looking at various aspects of Wikimedia project communities. This could be used by both community members to make decisions on their community direction and Wikimedia Foundation staff to point anti-harassment tool development in the right direction.
We have a set of metrics we are thinking about including in the kit, ranging from the ratio of active users to active administrators, administrator confidence levels, and off-wiki factors such as freedom to participate. It's ambitious, and our methods of collecting such data will vary.
Right now, we'd like to know:
* Which metrics make sense to collect? Which don't? What are we missing?
* Where would such a tool ideally be hosted? Where would you normally look for statistics like these?
Your opinions will help to guide this project going forward. We'll be reaching out at different stages of this project, so if you're interested in direct messaging going forward, please feel free to indicate your interest by signing up on the consultation page.
Looking forward to reading your thoughts.
 What do we mean by "health"? There is no standard definition of what makes a Wikimedia community "healthy", but there are many indicators that highlight where a wiki is doing well, and where it could improve. This project aims to provide a variety of useful data points that will inform community decisions that will benefit from objective data.
