The Color of Crime 2016

Edwin Rubenstein has published a report about crime in the US. As usual, it is an indictment on ‘Africans‘ and ‘Hispanics’. However, some of his figures are wrong (at least as far as I can tell). For instance, the report’s figure 5 (shown below) would indicate that ‘Asians’ are 2.3 times more likely than ‘whites’ to commit murder.

However, normalized figures (Norm. Rate) from the New York source would produce the following figures, all of which are different from Rubenstein’s figure. The same occurs for figure 6 in the report.


An email sent to Rubenstein three months ago about these issues remains unanswered.
