Last month in our newsletter, we asked our members how they collected Wi-Fi statistics at their respective libraries through a short survey. This month, we're excited to share those results with you!
A Quick Breakdown of the Numbers:
Before we delve into the results, a quick caveat: this is in no way a broad representation of how libraries gather statistics. There was a total of 27 respondents to our survey, so we can't draw any general conclusions about how libraries gather statistics, but there is still plenty of advice we wanted to share with other libraries.
Fifty-nine percent of our respondents said that they do collect Wi-Fi statistics.
When we asked how they collected statistics, 31 percent of our respondents said that their Wi-Fi hardware has a built-in tool that gets the job done.
But the largest category of respondents, 47.6 percent, answered that they used a different tool than what we listed (see pie chart below).
