the darker, the worser

That's racist.

But true

tons of murder in greenland... O_O
1 year ago
totally factual
1 year ago
Nobody lives there, it's pretty awful from what I've heard. They named it Greenland to fool people into moving there.
1 year ago
tons of murders in the wastelands of siberia as well.. and uninhabitable desert too...
not.
1 year ago
these are rates per 100,000 people
1 year ago
so a place with 5 people and one gets murdered would be dark? that makes literally 0 sense
1 year ago
it's called math
1 year ago
sorry shitler this has exactly what to do with 'math' ?
1 year ago
it's a relative proportion of total population
1 year ago
except its not
1 year ago
so... greenland has a population of approx. 50k people. 2 people get murdered there, lets just say, and this infographic will have us believe it's a dangerous place.
1 year ago
well in your example that would be a murder rate of .00004, it would be the same proportionally if 12,000 people were murdered in the US which has a population of 300 million.
1 year ago
chances are greater, per inhabitant, that you will be murdered in Greenland, than in say - France, so yeah
1 year ago
yet much less chance in reality.. because of population density...
1 year ago
well I don't think that is really demonstrated well in this "map"
1 year ago
good detective work there, Sherlock.
1 year ago
I was never making that point, but it doesn't mean the map is inaccurate, just poorly done.
1 year ago
so a map that misconstrues the 'big picture' is still accurate in your mind shitler?
see.. where im from a map or graph that is wrong is also inaccurate :P
1 year ago
FUCK YOU POSSUM SEE WHAT YOU'VE DONE!!!
1 year ago
I JUST LIKE MAPS!
1 year ago
um - what would be an "accurate" map yak?
what would it need to show?
1 year ago
Intentional homicide demographics are affected by changes in trauma care, leading to changed lethality of violent assaults, so the intentional homicide rate may not necessarily indicate the overall level of societal violence

aka. this graph may not accurately represent actual violent countries.
1 year ago
youd likely want to show a heatmap based off of population density and murder rates
as in how the actual density of people per square km relates to the amount of murders, so then you can say per square km or mile or whatever you want to use this place is more likely to be murdered in....
cuz i can pretty much guarantee you that if i lived in greenland... i would be pretty much not living in fear of being murdered....... ever

graphs like these are basically misconstruing certain pieces of data to try and show something that isn't true as true....
1 year ago
map also lists assisted suicide and euthanasia as murder ;//
1 year ago
this map?
1 year ago
yes that map
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_intentional_homicide_rate
read the disclaimers ;/
1 year ago
ah

so anyway, an accurate comparison would be to compare rural areas in one country to another, and urban areas in one country to another?

They should do the map like Call of Duty with a small blip of light for every murder.
1 year ago
Heather, this graph is not of "overall societal violence". It clearly just says murder rate by county.
1 year ago
* possum puts on TR mask now... *


list of Canadian provinces with murder rates lower than 3 per 100,000:
Ontario
New Brunswick
Quebec
Newfoundland
PEI
Nova Scotia
BC
Alberta

list of US states with murder rates under 3 per 100,000:
Connecticut
Montana
RI
Washington
Mass.
SoDak
Wisc.
Wyoming
Nebraska
Oregon
Maine
Hawaii
Nodak
Idaho
Minnesota
Utah
Iowa
Vermont
New Hamphire

extra fact - US murder rates per 100,000 have dropped steadily from a high of 10.2 in 1980, to 4.7 in 2011
1 year ago
Did you run those number by yak first?
1 year ago
shouldnt this take in population density?
prolly huh
1 year ago
they are from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime
1 year ago
murder rates dropped in the US because abortion was legalized, fact.
1 year ago
all dem unwanted babies are now dead, in jail, or dun growd up
1 year ago
"rates per 100,000" - yeah, it takes in pop density
1 year ago
clearly you havent seen how big ontario is compared to say.. pei?
so no.. it doesnt take population density into it.. thats my point... thats also why you are seeing greenland as dark

so its either really off... or its taking into account something else
1 year ago
lol
1 year ago
Here you go Yak, homicide count(2009) divided by population density(2010) according to UNdata numbers.

And also, Canada didn't do too hot, hitting in at nr 10.
1 year ago
I live in one of the worst place in Canada our murder per capita rate is quite high... but in total the amount of murders dwindles in comparison to the US.

Also if you consider gun homicides, Canada had almost 180 in 2009... America had almost 10,000... do that math Einstein.
1 year ago
Ontario, fuck yeah! a little darker than i ecpected
1 year ago
I* expected*
1 year ago
You do realize Ontario has a murder rate of less than 3 per 100,000... that seems quite safe...
1 year ago
I don't think there has ever been a murder in my area. Not counting the time we murdered all those Sioux.

Actually, I'll make a bold prediction. If the NFL expands to Europe, the first team will be the newly-relocated London Jaquars.

Good call, Claude, as that's the same prediction that every NFL analyst is making, and have been for months now. That and the fact that there really isn't a big enough market for them in Jacksonville.

I will move where ever the jags move. I am that much of a fan.
1 year ago
OKAY THAT'S IT. LOOK AT HOW MANY FUCKING FANS WERE THERE AT BUFFALO AND MIA. FUCKING NO FANS. NOW LOOK AT ALL THE FANS AT EVERBANK FIELD (THE JAGS STADIUM) FOR THE NYJ V JAGS GAME. DON'T FUCKING TRY THAT SHIT ON ME. JAGS FANS ARE LITERALLY THE BEST ANS IN THE NFL. WE HAVE NOT HAD A BLACK OUT IN YEARS.
