Wikipedia Gender Indicators (WIGI)

The world's leaders

WIGI is a project producing a open data set about the gender, date of birth, place of birth, ethnicity, occupation, and language of biography articles in all Wikipedias. Our data set comes from Wikidata, the database the feeds Wikipedia, and is updated weekly. This site shows a few demonstrations of what can be done with that information.

This project started as a personal research interest, and is now funded by a Wikimedia Foundation Grant.
