I asked this question recently with following answer from Support:

Information about lab caches can not be retrieved via Groundspeak's API which is what we use to fetch information about caches. This means that we can not make statistics about lab caches since we can't get information about them. If Groundspeak changes their API to include lab caches we can most likely include statistics about them as well, but not before that.

For me, it was sufficient, it depends on GroundSpeak.

I saw on an other GC statistics page the possibillity to enter the amount of the lab caches found manually, so that at least the count and thus the milestones are right.
Maybe this also could be an interim solution for project-gc?

Lab-caches are for the moment not included in the API that the site uses to fletch data from Untill that is included there will probably not be any Lab-caches on P-GC.

What about manually adding the number of lab caches that we founD?
by MatthewCat (2.7k points)
Manually entering them in would be fine, but project-gc is also about comparing with other people. Are you willing to enter them in for all 6 million geocachers out there? What we really need is to get onto the groundspeak forums and get them to modify the API.

Es wird daran gearbeitet daß man die Lab Caches Manuell eingeben kann .

Das wird aber noch dauern

Information über Lab-Caches kann nicht von den API des Groundspeaks geholt werden und das ist was wir benutzt um Information über Caches zu finden. Das heisst das wir nicht Statistik über Lab-Caches machen kann als wir keinen Information über ihnen haben. Wenn Groundspeak sein API geändert so als es Lab-Caches inkludiert, dann können wir Statistik über ihnen machen, aber nicht früher.

dies ist zwar ein Thread von 2014, aber so wie ich das sehe, wurde das mit den Labcaches nach 2 Jahren immer noch nicht umgesetzt. Oder habe ich da was übersehen?

I had the same problem. Lab caches aren't included in your profile stats
