What's wrong with wednesdays?

Recommended Posts

I just read all the Swedish logs icon_wink.gif and noticed that more than 50% of the cache finds occured on saturdays and sundays. Wednesday is the least popular day for geocaching

Eyeball statistics says that there are no difference between Wednesdays and other weekdays.

 

Whats the difference? Approx 8 finds on Wednesdays and 9 on the other, 11 (?) on Fridays. One needs a lot of observations to make that a significant difference.

In the USA, Wed. is known as "hump day". If one is going to search statistics concerning the least busy cache day, here is a guarantee: it will be Feb. 29. icon_rolleyes.gif

It's 8.37 percent on Wednesdays which is a statistically significant difference from the other weekdays, since there are as many as 9742 logs.

As J.J.Cale sings:

"Wednesday's hump day, hump day's Wednesday

Over the hump, the week's half-gone

If I had my pay on Wednesday I'd hang out, the hump day's gone"

 

So Wednesday is bad for everything icon_wink.gif
