APNIC has been conducting a long lived (5 year) measurement activity using google ads and javascript placements worldwide. We collect over 700,000 experiments a day from end users. The sampling is random, but has placement bias. So, we've developed methods of adjusting for this using world population stats. A side effect of this is that we may now have one of the only public insights into relativ ... More
