Statistical Fluctuations

Since October 2009 in the month leading up to a Federal, State or Territory General Election, traffic to The Southern Thunderer increases as people seek information regarding that particular election.

Once an election has been held traffic to The Southern Thunderer returns to a regular pattern. However, in order to grasp a better appreciation of traffic flows, statistics relating to the same time last year provides a more reliable guide as to readership levels.

Furthermore, as Federal, State and Territory General elections are held at varied times this factor affects statistical readership flows.

Federal, State or Territory By-Elections affects readership flows to a lesser degree than a General Election.

Differences between Visit Statistics and Page View Statistics also vary for different reasons.

While The Southern Thunderer publishes articles from a broad range of categories, the single most consistent factor affecting readership flow is people’s desire for accurate and reliable information on Public Elections.
