Hi - I use the statistics option on the home page to show number of users, topics, and replies. However, the numbers shown here don’t match what is shown in control. Can you please advise on the reason for the discrepancy - numbers show in the statistics bar are lower across all categories.

Analytics: If we filter by all time, it counts topics of all content types, including ideas and product updates. It does not show reported topics and it does not deduct topics in categories that are excluded for stats which results into the following:
(ideas/product updates + other + not included for stats)
Community stats: Counts for all time stats. All content types excluding ideas and product updates + reported topics. It excludes topics created in a category that is not included for stats.
other + reported
Analytics: The dashboard will also include trashed replies, which can cause some discrepancies.
Community: Does not include trashed replies.
Analytics: All users that are not banned, deleted or guest.
Community stats: Count all users in the database, minus distinct users that are not activated, banned, awaiting approval or deleted.
