It depends.

If the analytics programs use server logs and they don't specifically
exclude wget (or alike software) yes.

If the analytics programs are called within the web page with a url
from another site (like google-analytics) and if you haven't configured
wget to recursively span across hosts (--span-hosts) then no.
