A dataset I created because I was curious about how "random" r/random really is.
This data was collected by sending
GET requests to
https://www.reddit.com/r/random for a few hours on September 19th, 2021.
I scraped a bit of metadata about the subreddits as well.
randomness_12k_clean.csv reports the random subreddits as they happened and
summary.csv lists some metadata about each subreddit.
This file serves as a record of the 12,055 successful results I got from r/random. Each row represents one result.
subreddit: The name of the subreddit that the scraper recieved from r/random (
response_code: HTTP response code the scraper recieved when it sent a
GETrequest to /r/random (
As the name suggests, this file summarizes
randomness_12k_clean.csv into the information that I cared about when I analyzed this data.
Each row represents one of the 3,679 unique subreddits and includes some stats about the subreddit as well as the number of times it appears in the results.
subreddit: The name of the subreddit (
subscribers: How many subscribers the subreddit had (
int, max of
current_users: How many users accessed the subreddit in the past 15 minutes (
int, max of
creation_date: Date that the subreddit was created (
date_accessed: Date that I collected the values in
time_accessed_UTC: Time that I collected the values in
current_users, reported in UTC+0 (
appearances: How many times the subreddit shows up in
int, max of
summary.csv file, there are three missing values.
After I collected the number of subscribers and the number of current users, I went back about a week later to collect the creation date of each subreddit.
In that week, three subreddits had been banned or taken private. I filled in the values with a descriptive string.
- SomethingWasWrong (
- HannahowoOnlyfans (
- JanetGuzman (
I think there are a few NSFW subreddits in the results, even though I only queried r/random and not r/randnsfw. As a simple example, searching the data for "nsfw" shows that I got the subreddit r/nsfwanimegifs twice.
