Question about San Diego split vs. California board

hewn Dec 13, 2010 01:01 PM

I have a question.

Sacramento has more restaurants per capita than San Diego, and a more active Yelp community (the latter is not especially important, but might be a useful metric as far as interest in food culture in the community goes). There was no significant difference in the number of San Diego vs. Sacramento-oriented posts on the California board before San Diego received its own board.

So what exactly was the measure used to decide that San Diego deserved its own board, vs. other non-specifically-represented regions?

    "There was no significant difference in the number of San Diego vs. Sacramento-oriented posts on the California board before San Diego received its own board." is incorrect. There were approximately 3.5 times as many posts about San Diego as there were about Sacramento in the year preceding the board splits.

      >> There were approximately 3.5 times as many posts about San Diego as there were about Sacramento in the year preceding the board splits.

      That's not surprising, since San Diego has almost three times as many people living there as Sacramento (metro area 5.1 million vs 2.1 million).

      >> Sacramento has more restaurants per capita than San Diego

      Even if that were true, there are undoubtedly still a whole lot more restaurants in San Diego.
