it’s spelled ‘homicide’

Here are some interesting statistics, formatted into attractive Excel charts for ease of digestion. I chose the 15-24 age group because it encompasses typical high school and college students – those youths who are arguably in the prime of their lives. Incidentally, it is also the age group into which I fall. The chart titles are self-explanatory. I only included males of three races; this was mostly because these groups exhibit some pretty interesting trends. Perhaps more significantly, it is rather late and I am pressed for time.
