How are the statistics calculated?

Currently at Puzzling beta I see:

Site Stats

203 questions
357 answers
100% answered
565 users
262 visitors/day

There are 8 questions with 0 answers: link

So 195 questions out of 203 are answered, that gives 96%, not 100%. Is it a bug?

    Could you elaborate, please? How cache can lead to such a thing if unanswered questions were asked a long time ago?

The site stats use the public API's info method, which had a bug (related to this one). This bug is fixed now. The beta site stats widget in the sidebar is cached for an hour, so within at most 60 minutes, it should show correct data as well.
