Please note: the above data was compiled by Internet World Stats, a marketing firm. Marketing companies have intentions that are different from those of scientific publication, and who are therefore often not very concerned with documenting their methods. However this list was compiled by Internet World Stats stating: "data published by Nielsen Online, International Telecommunications Union, GfK, and other reliable sources" thus www.top5ofanything.com has used them as an official source of the compiled information. Please see the UNESCO 2005 Report: Measuring Linguistic Diversity on the Internet for more information on marketing firms and the reliability of such information concerning Internet usage and languages.
