I am active both on economics and cross-validated stackexchange and I've noted a LOT more homework questions at this site (including a lot of effort-less ones), than on cross-validated.
Given that, in my experience, many students struggle with both economics (especially micro) and stats I wonder why that is.
- Are students of economics more lazy (Robert Frank has shown that studying economics makes you more self-interested)?
- Does the cross-validated content look so technical that it scares beginner's questions away?
- Does cross-validated have a better filter system, or a more active community down-voting questions before I even see them?
Or are am I simply overlooking something else?
