A prevalence is a whole number that tells you how many users per 10,000 include a word, phrase or emoji within their bio. In ipseology it is the preferred measure, because it allows for easy comparison across time and place.
The prevalence distribution of JJJITV2 has a large head, while most of what you are probably interested in is in the long tail. I say the head of the distribution is large, because more than 50% of the words, phrases and emojis that make it into the data just barely surpass the 1 per 10,000 minimum criterion. Within the 2022 data, the 1st quartile and median prevalence values are 1. The mean prevalence is 3.9, while the third quartile value still only reaches 2!
Terms in the tail have more variance. The table below shows a few examples from 2022 starting at the 81st percentile.

|cavs, climate change, freelance writer, milwaukee, scifi, school teacher, student athlete, truth seeker, views are mine, 📌, 🙏🏼||3||86th|
