US peace index: how does each state compare?
Via the Guardian Datablog, questions to ponder:
- Which is the most violent state?
- Which are getting better/worse?
Click on a state either in the map or the bar chart to update the trend. Filter to the years you want to see with the table on the lower-left.
It’s pretty clear that the peace index is worst in the south. I wonder if there is any correlation to gun control laws?
