After running the WordPress stats plugin for many years, I've decided to upgrade to JetPack. The installation went smoothly, I connected and authorized my blog with Wordpress.com, and I'm seeing stats.

Is it safe to deactivate and delete my old WordPress stats plugin now? Or do I need to keep it in order to preserve my historical data?

I'm a bit shocked that WordPress hasn't provided a step-by-step upgrade guide for this.

Yes, you can safely deactivate the old wordpress.com stats Plugin. Once you verify that your historical data have been retained, you can safely delete the Plugin.
