See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cohort_(statistics)

It's a term that refers to a group that shares certain
characteristics, typically a time period. In this case it refers to a
group of editors who started editing in a given month, e.g. January
2008, and it follows the development of that group over time.

If you can't find a better translation, the equivalent of "group"
would be fine.
