I was recently participating on one of the meta sites and several of us wanted to see how that site compared to other sites, specifically with regards to moderator-deleted and moderator-closed posts and comments vs user actions. Then the "2018: a year in moderation" post came like a New Year's miracle. Well, nearly. It's some very good information. However, it cannot be quickly compared to any other SE sites. Specifically, it seems to be missing some vital totals, which would be necessary to make inter-site comparisons.

How can we compare our communities to other communities with the data provided in the posts?

    Not quite the intent of those posts - they're not normalized, nor is it possible to normalize them accurately for this purpose. If you're looking for something like this: 2018: a year in closing I may be able to provide it though.

  • @Shog9 Yes, I did just find that one. The site where this came up was Skeptics. Here's the post that motivated the discussion. Stats is not really my subject, but LangLangC (in the comment thread there) seems to have a trained grasp on it. Perhaps asking him what he thinks would be useful would be better than asking me.
