How many of the steward medals are for reviewing each type of review -- Close Votes, Low Quality posts, and so on?
I want to check which one is rarer. I need this information where can I filter then by review type.
The list of people recently awarded the Steward badge is here. I used this list and some quick-and-dirty use of ctrl-F to count the number of Steward badges of each type. Here are the results.
(Note: I include "breakdown by page" which is the number of results on each page; there are 6 pages of badges in the above link. "In the past year" actually means from pages 1 and 2, which is between September 7 2015 and today, August 11 2016.)
Total number of Steward badges awarded: 343
141 Close Votes; 48 in the past year. (Breakdown by page: 22 + 26 + 24 + 30 + 27 + 12)
61 Low Quality Posts; 29 in the past year. (Breakdown by page: 14 + 15 + 12 + 10 + 8 + 2)
62 First Posts; 17 in the past year. (Breakdown by page: 10 + 7 + 12 + 10 + 12 + 11)
53 Suggested Edits; 14 in the past year. (Breakdown by page: 8 + 6 + 7 + 6 + 9 + 17)
22 Reopen Votes; 9 in the past year. (Breakdown by page: 5 + 4 + 5 + 4 + 3 + 1)
4 Late Answers; 3 in the past year. (Breakdown by page: 1 + 2 + 0 + 0 + 1 + 0)
The data confirms my experience that Close Votes are the easiest to accumulate a lot of reviews of, especially recently; low quality posts are next, then first posts, then edits, then reopen votes, and finally late answers. Only a select few have managed to get the Late Answers Steward badge.
This question contains information about the total number of reviews ever completed of each type, which may also be relevant to you.
IMPORTANT: Review carefully. Take a serious look at each post, vote appropriately and in accordance with site norms, and skip reviews you don't know what to do with. Do not just speed through the reviews quickly, or you will get banned from reviewing. Do not abuse the review process just to get a badge. Good luck.
