Default Gun crime and gaming in the UK

After stumbling upon this article....

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/20...rners-play-ps3

And seeing this image from that article...


image host

I decided to compare it to this bbc image.



There's a slight correlation between the two...

Correlation? Between what and what? And how does a map showing the locations of 'fatal stabbings and shootings' involving 'young victims' in one particular month almost five years ago have any relationship to another map showing current 'popular genres', but giving no data whatsoever tell us anything?

I just found it quite amusing that's all.

1. You're using 2012 gaming data with 2007 stabbing/shooting data, and trying to make an arguement that the type of gaming has an influence over stabbing & shootings. At the very least, you should be using crime data taken after the gaming data was colated.

How does the old saying go? There's lies, there's damn lies, and then there's statistics. This piece of "journalism" is one of the three.

If you could make another "study", find the # of gamers who spend 8+hours a day on a game, and still committed a murder. Bet your number is quite low.
