So, we decided compile the data ourselves by leveraging Chatroulette Map, some scrappy programming, and a passionate tech community.
We soon had detailed data on 2,883 Chatroulette sessions that tied users to geography, gender, appearance, and more.
Below, we see the “pervert rate” by country: The United Kingdom dominates the rankings here with a pervert concentration of 22%!
Turkey, France, and Germany tie for second place with rates of 15%.
Of the perverts that were identified, only 8% were female.
We coded up a quick webpage that displayed a random photo from the data set and asked some basic multiple-choice questions about that photo.
The good news, however, is that a roulette wheel is the statistician’s best friend.
The central limit theorem tells us that a large set of random observations allows us to draw high-confidence conclusions about the underlying data set.
Chatroulette Map uses this IP data to geolocate and map random chatters on their website (along with still photos from their chats).
Chatroulette Map is also nice enough to expose all of its data points to anyone who clicks “View Source.” Right in the raw source code of their homepage is the image URL, latitude, longitude, city, state, and country of every chatter on their map.
