Hey Yani,

This came up on the list a while back (http://lists.automattic.com/pipermail/wp-hackers/2013-November/047235.html):

"The data used for the graphs on the stats page are built daily, using a
random(ish) sampling of the API requests from the previous day.

What you see on that page is current and up-to-date. It's not counting
every install in the world, or months-old installs, or inactive installs
that nobody is visiting. It's built from just the API requests from the day
before.” -Otto
