J$ said to let the community know if anyone did anything interesting with the information from the net worth tracker.
I wrote a small (python) script that pulls just the net worth values (currently standing at 264 in number) and adds them up to get a grand total. It also takes a mean average and a median average. It only takes the net worth numbers, and literally nothing else. So bloggers not showing net worth numbers don’t get figured into the calculations.
The mean average is what people typically think of when they hear that word “average”; you add up all the values and divide by how many there are. But particularly large or small numbers can “stretch” this value one way or the other if they’re relatively extreme with respect to the rest of the values. So I’m also taking the median average. The median average is the “middle point”; 50% of the people have more than this value, and 50% have less.
So without further ado, here are the numbers. (You can click on the image to enlarge it).
I think that’s a pretty good start! A collective net worth of almost $130 million!
I would like to pull these numbers around the 1st of every month. I think it would be interesting to see what the trends are of the collective group over time.
P.S. If any of the mods/admins think this could be more appropriately categorized, feel free to change it.
