Subscription to Ecojesuit A Report of the Latest Count of Subscribers of Ecojesuit

To record the number of people subscribed to Ecojesuit, a dataset which presents the monthly tally of subscribers from different countries was created. Data from previous years were used to assess the current number of subscriptions for the English, Spanish, and French edition of the site. Only those lists of subscribers with confirmed subscription were exported from PhpList, the official open-source mailing lists management software of Ecojesuit, to ensure data validity.

As of 1 January 2017, there are 2,345 subscribers of Ecojesuit which include 1,367 subscribers for the English edition; 895 subscribers for the Spanish edition; and 83 subscribers for the French edition.

Most of the subscribers are from Europe and Central Asia (542), Latin America and the Caribbean (241), and North America (205). A total of 1,124 subscribers, however, decided not to specify their country or current location.

Table 1 shows the number of subscribers per language per year and the total number of subscribers annually. From 1,158 subscribers in 2011, it increased to 1,373 in 2012 (+215); 1,557 in 2013 (+184); 1,674 in 2014 (+117); 2112 in 2015 (+438); and 2,346 in 2016 (+234). In 2016, the data reveal that majority of the subscriptions are for English, with additional 266 subscribers in 2015 and 139 in 2016. The Spanish edition of Ecojesuit remains second with the recorded 129 new subscribers in 2015 and 61 in 2016.

Meanwhile, to find out if there is an increase of English subscribers in 2015, the average number of subscribers from 2011 to 2014 was calculated (the result is 23.49) and was used as baseline. This suggests that month(s) in 2015 with 23 subscribers (or more than the said number) show an "observed" increase on subscription rate. The data reveal that the subscription in February (49), March (27), April (25), July (25), September (26), October (23), and November (28) have increased from the previous year (2014).

From 2011 to 2015, the average number of subscriber became 23.18. This also means that month(s) with 23 subscribers (or more than this number) show an "observed" increase on subscription rate. Data in 2016 reveal that only the month August has increased with 28 new subscribers.
