Regarding COVID-19, Cross Validated or Data Science would be the appropriate place for extrapolation (forecasting) questions.

But for questions centred around the interpretation of COVID-19 data, which is the most appropriate site?

Some examples of 'interpretation' type questions:

  • What counts as a COVID-19 death?
  • Can those who contract COVID-19 a second time count twice in 'case' statistics?

Where (if anywhere) on Stack Exchange do such questions belong?

1 Answer 1


Medical Sciences (formerly known as Health) has quite a few questions about the COVID-19 pandemic, including some that are about interpretation/application of statistics.

The usual caveats apply, e.g. search if your question hasn't already been asked, share your research, and check the Help Center before posting.
