Is this an official project from the Wikimedia Foundation or is there any relation with Wikipedia?
Not at all. WikiFamo.us uses data released by the Wikimedia Foundation but is totally independant and not endorsed by the foundation.
Where do these statistics come from?
They are derived from the monthly stats compiled by Erik Zachte, based on the files created by the Analytics Team.
Where do the data (labels, descriptions and images) come from?
They are harvested from the central repository shared by all linguistic versions on wikipedia : wikidata.
Is this reliable?
Not really. There are some bias in the source data and we excude all articles with less than 30 monthly visits. For some subjects that don't get many views that might change the result. Do not take it seriously!
My question is still still unanswered
