Abstract

In recent years there has been a large discussion of systemic bias, what topics are not covered, on the English Wikipedia. The majority of those discussions have focused on what topic areas are less covered and very little work has been done to look at where the majority of articles reside, geographically. Using audited content, good articles and featured articles, as the data corpus, I am going to show where in North America has the highest density of high quality articles on the English Wikipedia and where is lacking.
