Forum Post: Statistics?

I need the statistics of numbers of participants (approximate) in OWS at different locations. I am researching the impact of social media, participation and (oddly enough) the presence of 'corporate zombies' at OWS events. I am finding most news sources to indicate that there was an event but to be very iffy on the numbers attending. ("a few" "several hundred" "quite a lot". Thanks!

True, but approximate values would be appreciated. It also does make me wonder why the media isn't a bit more specific. What exactly does "a disappointing turnout" mean? 1? 100? 1000? How many is needed for a "movement of significance"? Vargh.
