What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

I have seen a few questions like this. It seems to me that and should be merged.

You'd be more likely to gain support for this suggestion if you pulled some data, er, statistics, showing that the two tags are used interchangeably most of the time. To be sure, there are at least some questions where statistics is used for questions that are looking for data or ways to collect it, not for information about how to analyze the data. –  Caleb Apr 4 '13 at 19:10

I think should be the main tag, and synonymed to it. I don't have the 5 score to do it though.

Did you suggest as synonym?

http://stackoverflow.com/tags/statistical-analysis/synonyms

Edit: That requires 5 rep in the tag, so one question or one answer. (Leaving this answer so others don't do the same thing I did.)
