Inconsistencies in page view results for small wikipedias in different stat tables

I compare from time to time African language wikipedia pageviews. I wondered about large differences between May and November 2017 when looking at

  1. https://stats.wikimedia.org/EN_Africa/Sitemap.htm Wednesday May 31, 2017 ( TABLE 1)
  2. https://stats.wikimedia.org/EN/Sitemap.htm Thursday November 30, 2017 TABLE 2)

I compared to 3. https://stats.wikimedia.org/EN/TablesPageViewsMonthlyCombined.htm TABLE 3

RESULT: for views by hour (default in tables 1+2); in table 3 I divide the given monthly rounded figure by 30, then by 24

Language Nov 2017 Table1 Nov 2017 Table 3 May 2017 Table 2 May 2017 Table 3
arz 1204 2668 4028 3194
sw 570 2361 1905 1667
yo 468 381 1274 324
af 2560 2361 5640 3056

This looks to me highly contradictory and at least for smaller wikipedias the figures are thus useless.Kipala (talk) 12:17, 1 March 2018 (UTC)
