Hi,
Please help me understand this.
For the same site.

My Analytics stat are(March 1-22):
Average: 11.42 P/V
Visits: 92
Pageviews: 1,051

My AWstat for the same period are:
Unique visitors = 165
Number of visits = 895(5.42 visits/visitor)
Pages = 3106 (3.47 pages/visit)

My main question is how many visitors am I getting.

92 or 165

I would say 165, but it's crazy to think that ~70 people would have no javascript or off or block google analytics, unless it's a tech site like digg.

They don't - it's just that these aren't people, they are bots... external bots, hosting company bots, search bots, just other things. I keep on saying that Log files stink for measuring humans.

I wouldn't be surprised if your ftp program counted - how else can it list your files, without making a call to the server?

That sucks.

Anyway so Google Analytics is more accurate.

I know scrapper bots are spidering as this is a small niche and human edited.

They want to steal all my hardwork.

I will find out how to block these people.
