Data Dump – April 2021

The data presented below is strictly for comparison between states. Whatever conclusions you might draw are strictly your own. I crunched the numbers to satisfy my own curiosity about a couple of things that come up on the news and in debates from time to time. The “Unlawful Deaths” column contains data pertaining to murder and non-negligent manslaughter. The color-coded cells represent:

  • Blue – Democrat / Liberal
  • Red – Republican / Conservative
  • Purple – Both parties (ie a Republican governor and Democrat House)

I’d love to say that the table is sortable, but Word Press doesn’t support Javascript at present so I’m unable to add the JS library to make it work. If you wish to copy the table into a spreadsheet, feel free. I cobbled the information together by scraping it off the web and pasting it into a Libre Office Calc spreadsheet. Links to my sources are below the table.

All data is 2019 except state political affiliations which are as of December 2020. Sources listed at end of article.
