Is there a statistical study of how many questions on this site get answered immediately or fairly quickly and correlated with the difficulty of the question or where it occurs in the academic study sequence, or answered satisfactorily with the first response, remain unanswered for long etc?

    $\begingroup$ Use the data explorer. You will need to learn some basic database usage. But that can be picked up by reading some of the sample queries available at data.stackexchange.com/math/queries $\endgroup$ – Willie Wong Jun 13 '14 at 10:43

    $\begingroup$ Do you have a good idea as to how to measure "how difficult" a question is? I suppose looking at tags would be one thing: perhaps topology is harder than algebra-precalculus, for instance. Do you have an idea that gives a finer sieve? $\endgroup$ – davidlowryduda Jun 13 '14 at 13:31
