That's the stats I have from the login screen at those specific times. If someone has more historical stats then please post it.2007-2009 was biiig. There's a good reason for it, too - 2007 was a year they allowed users to finally join without a credit card, just a few months before - which was a BIG boost to users. I joined in January 2007 due to exactly that, and those three years following were super active all over - folks exploring, sandboxes filled. It's probably the years when I met the most new people on average, so I'm not sure. Daniel's stats up there seem pretty accurate all around.
There are Second Life stats online from 2003-2005 on various sites. Most have gone offline now.
The Second Life Grid Survey is the best source for updated stats.
