Analysing patterns

The online test has been running for enough time to create statistically meaningful results. We wanted to try to be able to ask straightforward questions such as

"Which alternate memories are the most strongly believed?"
"Which countries are affected the most?"
"Which categories such as movies, art, people etc. are affected more than others?"
"Which decades do the most Mandela Effects apply to?"

This data from these tests is automatically entered into these analytics which are updated daily. The purpose is to help spot any patterns in the Mandela Effect.

Top 10 most popular Mandela Effects

This shows which alternate memories people have shown the most interest in. Most traffic comes from search engines, so it's a rough indication of how many users were sent to the article directly from them. Visitors could arrive from other sources, such as Facebook, YouTube, Reddit or Twitter etc, or read them once here from browsing within the site, so it's by no means exact.
