Are there any statistics about the number of visitors that go from
Wikipedia to different websites linked with external links?
I don't think so. If you ask for them, perhaps you can get a random
recently seen some people adding external links (as
articles from different newspapers and I was wondering if it's really
worth it for the newspaper to have someone add such links?
This paper discuss a project to add links to Wikipedia and you can see
the results and how it improved visits.
Wikipedia uses nofollow, so adding links to your website doesn't increase
your pagerank, but it works fine for reaching new readers.
Theses sites receive a lot of traffic from Wikipedia, for sure.
