MyHeritage Family Tree Statistics - My April 2021 Tree

 I recently uploaded a new family tree to MyHeritage via a GEDCOM upload, and I want to review the statistics for that tree.  Unlike other major online trees, MyHeritage provides a wide range of numbers about a specific tree.

Here is the top of the Overview page on the Home > Family Statistics page of my MyHeritage page for my latest family tree (my ancestral families and my research) with 62,622 profiles:

The Overview page shows graphs for Gender, Living vs. Deceased, and Relationship Status, plus Common Last names, male first names and female first names.  

The Places page also has maps for Places of birth:

And places of death:

The Ages page charts show age distribution, oldest living people, Youngest people, Average life expectancy, Lived the most, and lived the least:

The Births page shows charts for Birth months, Zodiac signs, and When people were born: 
The Marriages page shows charts for Number f marriages, Married the most, When were people married, Age at marriage, Oldest when married, and Youngest when married:

The Marriage page also shows Marriage duration in years, Longest marriage, Shortest marriage, Average age difference, and Age differences.

The Children page has charts for Number of children per family, Family with most children, People with most children:
Also, Age when having children, Oldest when had a child, Youngest when had a child, Age difference between oldest and youngest children:
With over 62,000 profiles in this family tree, it is inevitable that I have errors of commission (e.g., typing...) and omission.  I see that I need to check the outliers that are shown on the charts above.

Family tree software programs like RootsMagic, Family Tree Maker, Legacy Family Tree and others have some statistical information and I may look at the statistics available in those programs also.


Disclosure: I receive a complimentary subscription to MyHeritage, and have received other material consideration in past years. I uploaded my autosomal DNA raw data to their DNA product. This does not affect my objective analysis of MyHeritage products.
