I clicked 'Activity' on the right to see what it did, and it shows about 4 dozen users joining (the site? the forum?) per day...
Some say "deleted", so I wonder how many of these joining accounts are real and which cities are getting the highest growth rates.
@davebutton The 'Activity' is just for the forum.
This post has some stats for the changes over one month, between the middle of June and July (2018). There were 3864 new members in about 1 month (excluding people who appeared and disappeared during the month), so that's around 130 per day on average.
3158 of those new members were from the US (82%); the other new users were mostly from Canada (235), England (201) and Australia (89).
New York had the most new users (106), followed by Los Angeles (94), Houston (61), Chicago (37), Austin (36) and San Diego (33).
Around 23% of the new users were female.
At least one person joined from every US state (+ Washington DC):
(There are 51 and I had asked which one was extra, thus @torelax's post below)
If you take the population of the state and divide it by the number of cuddlers stated above, you get a fairer measure. I only checked the top six states, plus my own state AZ, my results:
CA 1 in 66,566
AZ 1 in 84,578
TX 1 in 91,290
OH 1 in 94,797
PA 1 in 100,078
FL 1 in 104,461
NY 1 in 119,578
Arizona jumped to second even though its 11th by number of cuddlers.
There might be some other surprises if every state was calculated.
California for the win! Now I wonder if that’s north California or south? Hehehe
@UKGuy Here are the rest of the states by proportion as suggested (using 2017 population estimates from Wikipedia).
Washington DC edges out California for top place!
The proportion of people from each US state (+ Washington DC) who joined over 1 month (mid June to mid July 2018):
Well, at least California is still up there lol
@respectful , I am sure DC has lot of males joining not females because we continue to be at scarcity levels where lot of Cuddle deprived souls wander around .. LOL..
@choicesvital Yep, for DC 14 out of the 15 new members were male.
Since that's the second time I've been asked about gender I've added the number of women to the original post.
The state with the highest percentage of women added is Montana (75%), but that hardly counts when there were just 4 new members during that month.
Poor Delaware had 0/10 women added ...
For states where with more than 100 new members during that month, the percentage of women was between 18% (New York) and 25% (Texas). Overall 23% of new members were female.
Any uk info?
@CUD_male There were 201 new members during that month with country code "GB".
The data isn't very clean (there are people in "Londen", "Londres" and "Londyn") but 38 people seemed to be from London, 60 were just in "England,England,GB", 17 from Scotland and 3 from Wales -- the other 83 were from cities all over England.
I couldn't see any new users from Ireland (there were 20 previously existing Irish members active in the previous 9 months though).
46 / 201 new users were women (23%). For London, 10 out of the 38 new members were women (26%).
WHERE ARE THE HOUSTON LADY, I GOT NO LUCK SO FAR LOL
Oregon, my state is third on the list, but they are mainly In Portland I believe. Not many in my area.
Man @respectful I should have gone through data like this before I planned tour, I couldn't make time this tour for some of the most popular areas. I'll have to make my way out to DC and Cali for my next tour whenever that is. Though now looking through this I'm hopeful for going to Austin next and then later when I return to Boston
@Kyo18 - you make a good point. States are large and it's likely cuddlers are clustered in just a few areas in the state, so you can't read too much into these statistics.
@SnuggleWithSam The data in this thread is just for the number of people who joined over one month, but there's an older post with some maps of where active(ish) enthusiasts are.
Here's the US map from that post:
I might add a state breakdown to that thread too, and maybe zoom in on a few areas of the map so it's clearer where people are.
(I guess breaking it down by city would be useful too but that's a lot harder, since the location people put in their profiles is at different levels: city, district/suburb, state or even just a country name).
