Update: I've re-tagged all questions tagged with .


I came across a question tagged : Find the confidence in an accuracy measurement. I interpreted it as a question about , so I made an edit.

Then I looked at the tag. It doesn't have a description. There are only 24 (now 22) questions tagged with it, all within the last year.

  • Should this tag be deleted and the question re-tagged with statistical-significance instead, if appropriate?
  • What's the procedure when one comes across a (potentially) unwise tag like this example?

This question from 2015 seems related: Ambiguous [confidence] tag

(Turning my comment into an answer)

Nearly half (13/22) have either [sc] & [ci], or [sc] & [ss]. That's prima facie evidence that it's seen as strongly related to those tags and just adding some nuance in the OP's mind. The others I'd have to look at, but I strongly suspect something better could be found in each case. I think we should remove and/or retag them, and then [sc] will just disappear.

    $\begingroup$ Done! I've retagged all the questions that were labeled statistical-confidence. Also learned that there are some uncategorizable questions on CV. $\endgroup$
