Analysis of stats changes

 

Below is a histogram of the overall decrease in units awarded to individual Genome@home users as a result of the new stats system. It can be seen here that the overall effect of this change is very minor, with a median loss of 1%.

 

This plot shows the lack of correlation between percent loss in units due to the new system and the total score awarded under the old system. Even among the top few users, the distribution of loss is uniform.
