The 100 Most-Edited Wikipedia Articles

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 8.06.56 AM

What kind of things would you expect to show up on a list of the 100 most-edited articles on Wikipedia?  Politicians?  Sure.  Controversial topics?  Of course.  Sports teams?  Yep.

There are a few surprises in this list, though.  Check it out here:  http://fivethirtyeight.com/datalab/the-100-most-edited-wikipedia-articles/ .  Does anything jump out at you?

BADGING:  Read the article linked above.  Organize the 100 items into categories any way you see fit.  You may have one category marked “other”, but it may not have more than 10 items in it.  Make some sort of appropriate graph (pie chart, bar graph, etc.) showing the breakdown of these 100 articles into your chosen categories.  You may do this by hand, use Excel or use some other online tool.  Email the chart to Mr. Bezaire.
