    Here are the results of the state analysis. I used a total of 303 cases. Cases involving more than 1 perp were only counted once. Some states have an unnaturally low number as record access is blocked in those states. They are marked with an asterisk.

    33 cases - 10.89% - Florida
    28 cases - 09.24% - Texas
    25 cases - 08.25% - Ohio
    23 cases - 07/59% - Pennsylvania
    20 cases - 06.60% - New York
    19 cases - 06.27% - Indiana
    11 cases - 03.63% - California*
    11 cases - 03.63% - Illinois
    10 cases - 03.30% - Georgia
    10 cases - 03.30% - Missouri
    09 cases - 02.97% - Colorado
    08 cases - 02.64% - Arizona
    08 cases - 02.64% - Michigan
    07 cases - 02.31% - North Carolina
    06 cases - 01.98% - Kansas
    06 cases - 01.98% - Mississippi
    06 cases - 01.98% - Oklahoma
    06 cases - 01.98% - Oregon
    05 cases - 01.65% - Washington
    04 cases - 01.32% - Alabama
    04 cases - 01.32% - Arkansas
    04 cases - 01.32% - Virginia
    04 cases - 01.32% - Wisconsin
    03 cases - 00.99% - Kentucky

    Belinda Woman, thank you so very much for all the hard work you put into keeping us up to speed.

    Honestly, you're a gentlewoman and a scholar in my book. Your patience is astounding. I'm proud to know ye!!!!!!:blowkiss:

    Were you always so detailed and good with numbers? I'd have been lost at Ohio. Very interesting I must say as well.

    I actually worked in accounting and accounting-related positions for 12 years before I became disabled, so I'm very detail oriented. Thanks for the compliments. :blowkiss:

    Although the database is still relatively small (about 370 finished cases), I am interested in seeing the results. All of my cases come from here and we know this is true data and has been investigated by WSer's. There are many national figures for the types of information I am presenting, but I always wonder who is footing the bill for those studies. We know this is correct data, because we are the ones that investigated the cases. I hope that makes sense. I will go back and redo any results I have published when the database gets larger.

    Belinda--As always, I'm astounded by the work you do. I, like Filly, would be stuck across the street from Ohio!! This is what makes WS so fabulous. We bring gifts we used elsewhere to this board. Im wondering, though if you see any "skewing" of the data connected to where frequent posters live. Obviously, we all have access to national news but I think we also have our ear to the ground in our home cities and states. I know I do. Just wondering if that's a factor. And have you looked at the national statistics to see how "our" number compare?

    Thank you so much!!

    (Filly, we're just going to have to admit that she's the class math whiz. We're in the back trying to hide the title of our little remedial math catch-up books. "Hey, didn't Belinda wear that skirt on Monday? I know she did. I would never wear a skirt twice in a week. Pssst, what's 9 x 8?")

    Missizzy - That is an excellent and I think significant point. I know the state data is skewed by the fact that there is just no access to records in some states. That limits my ability to investigate and document them, obviously. But, being skewed as far as who is doing the most posting really kind of throws the whole thing out the window. That would have an obvious affect on what cases are presented. Didn't think of that. I was just messing around and thought I would see what I had. I think probably the State data is no good. I'm so glad you thought of that.

    I have not yet tried to compare any of my data to national statistics because my database is still too small, I think. I am just throwing some stuff out here to show where we stand at the moment. As the database grows, I will get more into the nitty-gritty of comparisons and such.
