I think there is another need for 'individual' statistics when doing what I guess could be called "path analysis". It's nice to know that 50% of your visitors saw Page 1 and 65% saw Page 2 ... But it can be a lot more interesting to know that 35% of your visitors followed path "Page 1 -> Page 5 -> Page 17" while 62% of your visitors followed path "Page 1 -> Page 8 -> Page 32".  So it might not be micro-demographic-targeting. It might just be a need to maintain state in order to do path analysis of the site. Now the paths themselves may correlate with different demographics ... Etc. HTH, RonL.  Referrer information can give you a fair amount of that; But I don't think it does a good job covering recursive paths like "Page 1 -> Page 5 -> Page 1 -> Page 7 -> Page 5 -> Page 39". To properly capture that kind of path I think you really need to roll your own state, log, and analysis app.
