I know what the Pareto principle/distribution is. How does that fit with the conclusion "the government is lying about 50% of people being vaccinated. It's really 20%" ?

Its a probability distribution that applies to situations where the majority of a response variable is concentrated in a relatively small segment of the population. Its used to explain some observations like x% of wealth being in the hands of x% of the population, or x% of employees in a company do x% of the work. The numbers 20 and 80 come up a lot but it doesnt necessarily have to follow those parameters. But those have stuck, probably from the platitude "focus 80% of your energy on your most important 20% of projects" to get the greatest return.

What you used it for is nothing like that. We just have a population with two categories, and you somehow just think the split is 80/20? The Pareto principle says nothing about that sitiation. Why isnt the population split 80/20 in every other situation with 2 categories then?

Before speaking with such authority learn what the hell you're talking about fool.

Depends. In Michigan, many years ago a guy got slapped with a misdemeanor for swearing after falling out of a kayak. Its sort of a legend.
