Abstract: Future development plans for the ESO archive are based not only on the monitoring of its actual usage but also on the evolving needs of the astronomical community. How does the population of active archive users break down in terms of ESO and non-ESO member states? What is the distribution of archive requests by country? What are the most popular ESO instruments and modes in terms of archive requests? Which archive services are mostly used and which ones would benefit the astronomical user community? How many scientific publications are based on archival ESO data? Answers to these questions are meaningful indicators to assess the performance and the evolution of the ESO archive and to characterize its user population.
