March is typically a month where all traffic records are beaten on RePEc. 
Well not this month, but we were close: 694,988 file downloads (less than 
3,000 short of the record) and 2,675,511 abstract views (record). The fact 
that Easter fell in March this year probably has something to do with 
this. We can thus look forward to a glorious month of April! But we should 
not be too disappointed, as there is now a RePEc application on Facebook. 
Look for a big blue letter “R” in the applications menu of your 
Facebook account.

An uncharacteristically low number of new RePEc archives opened last 
month, four: Princeton University Press, the Department of Economics at 
University of Auckland, the Department of University of Malaga, and the 
Institute of Local Public Finance, Germany. As for the thresholds passed 
during the last month, we have:

6,000,000 cumulated downloads through EconPapers
3,000,000 references extracted
1,250,000 citations found
175,000 online working papers
140,000 items with references
100,000 cited articles
2,000 listed book chapters
