How do I get instance-wide project statistics

I've come into an organization where JIRA usage has been somewhat ad hoc - lots of starts/stops on creating projects, etc. I'd like to be able to remove some outdated projects - no longer needed - consolidate others (organizations and practices have evolved beyond the original intent).

There's a view of all projects, but I can't seem to find any activity reports/exports, etc. that span the entire instance (all projects)... e.g., take the project summary page and create a report (spreadsheet) with a row per project and column data from the summary page.

Any guidance would be appreciated

I'm sure there's other ways to do this, but I like to use the Two Dimensional Filter Statistics gadget to look at statistics for a particular set of issues (in this case, all issues in all projects).

I've set up an publicly-visible example here on our JIRA instance -

In this case it's displaying the number of issues of each type per project, but it could just as easily be configured to show any other statistic you want to track.

As Penny suggests, start with a filter and a 2d filter.

I went one further and scribbled a report ages ago - list of projects, with the number of issues in them and the highest number used (note that those can be different!). I'd like to add "last time issue was updated" and "when earliest issue was created" to give a bit more of an indication of how active and old a project is (but never had time, and make do with the project ID, as the lower the number, the older the project)
