What is the ideal SE site to ask about population growth and demographics in general?


What is the ideal SE site for xxx ...

Use a search engine with "stackexchange xxx" to find a site, then search on the tags to accumulate a list of statistics, compare the list with your subject and check each site's help file to determine where best to ask your question. You need to search for duplicates, while doing that you can view a few questions to determine which site seems to give better (or faster?) answers to the category of question you are asking.

  • Biology has 14 questions tagged demography and 131 tagged population-dynamics.

  • Economics has 8 questions tagged demography, with nothing for population or growth.

  • Geographic Information Systems has 25 questions tagged demography and 90 tagged population, nothing for growth.

  • History has 46 questions tagged demography, and 28 tagged population or 11 tagged population-transfer, nothing for growth.

Decide if your question about "population growth and demographics, in general" should have a bias for biology, economics, GIS or history - if none of those fit you can propose a new site or try to reopen a failed beta at Area 51 (as Glorfindel suggested).

    So, it seems there is a site missing for an important subject.. Thank you for the research you have done! – Marko36 Sep 27 '18 at 8:11

I remember that there was an Area 51 proposal "Geography" where this would have fit, but it has been closed. I don't think there's currently a site in the network which covers these topics. You could try to re-propose Geography, but the bar for new sites has been set considerably higher.

  • Thank you! I browsed through the sites, I searched through them all, but it seems you are right. – Marko36 Sep 26 '18 at 14:00
  • You're welcome! I didn't downvote your question, but you could improve it by posting one or two examples of actual questions you'd like to ask. – Glorfindel Sep 26 '18 at 14:05
