Blog > A different ranking
But, obviously not all countries have the same population! If we would take a sample of the same dimension in each country, which ones would contain more Postcrossers in it? Or in other words, in which ones is Postcrossing more popular?
We decided to do the math and share the results with you. We took into account the approximate population of each country, the number of users and came up with an interesting list.
And here’s how the ranking of the top 50 look like:
(per 100,000 habitants)
|12||Guernsey and Alderney||28|
|21||Man (Isle of)||15|
Surprise, surprise – Finland is at the very top. I bet you all guessed that one. But did you guessed all the following ones? Indeed, we had some surprises as well. Tiny Estonia with 1,3 million people manages to have plenty of Postcrossers. Same goes for Lithuania and even more with Macau!
Are there other statistics you would be curious to see here? Let us know!
PS: To calculate the data above we took into account only countries with more than 10 users and excluded countries which were too small or of which we did not have any relevant population data.
