  • February 8, 2017 - Annual E-mail Statistics, Part 3

    2015 E-mails, Betty C. Jung Welcome back to a look at my E-mail statistics! Here is another way of looking at the total of E-mails I have to deal with on a daily basis. The statistics of the total number of E-mails in the February 2, 2017 posting doesn't tell the whole story.

    For all of 2016 I tried really hard to get off as many mailing lists as I could, many of which I never signed up for. It is apparent that companies are selling their E-mail lists to others. It's so annoying. But, I did make a dent so that in 2016 I was averaging 10 less E-mails on daily basis than what I was getting in 2012!

    Another welcome trend is that the percentage of spam E-mails is now down to 31%, from a high of 49% in 2014! Over the years I have discovered that with a spam filter in place I can just delete everything that ends up in the spam inbox. So cathartic when I press "delete." One can only imagine how much paper would be wasted if all this was snail mail.

  • February 7, 2017 - Annual E-mail Statistics, Part 2

    2016 E-mails, Betty C. Jung Welcome to a look at my E-mail statistics! Since I now have several years of E-mail totals, it is always fun to do some trend analyses.

    Here is a line chart of the total number of E-mails I got on an annual basis. The good news is I am getting less spam these days, and have actually got less E-mails in 2016 than I did in 2012, which I started tracking!

  • February 6, 2017 - Annual E-mail Statistics, Part 1

    2016 E-mails, Betty C. Jung Welcome to a look at my E-mail statistics! Since 2012, I have been diligent about keeping track of how many E-mails I get on a daily basis.

    I started doing this because I tell people that I am constantly inundated with E-mails. I would say that I get hundreds. And, then people would say that nobody gets hundreds.

    So, like the epidemiologist that I am (among other things), I decided that I will track the number of E-mails I get and then analyze the results.

    Here is a bar chart of the total number of E-mails I got in 2016, per month. The monthly totals are categorized as either regular E-mail and Spam. For 2016, I got 104,277! Yes, indeed, I do get hundreds of E-mails a day!
