The order of sites on Reputation Leagues page roughly corresponds to their size. However, I could not identify the statistic by which the sites are ordered: it's neither the number of questions, nor the number of users, nor site age... what is it, then?

(In particular, I am curious to know by what measure History of Science and Mathematics ranks last in the network.)

Not a duplicate of Ordering of Sites on SE Reputation Leaderboards; I am not asking for the order to be changed.

  • (Just a guess) Unfortunately, HSM is last in total users, which could be contributing. But the pattern ends there; almost no other sites seem to match in both lists. – HDE 226868 Jan 23 '15 at 0:14
