Breast Cancer
Datafile Name: Breast Cancer Datafile Subjects: Health , Medical Story Names: Breast cancer Reference: A.J. Lea. (1965). New Observations on Distribution of Neoplasms of Female Breast in Certain Countries. British Medical Journal, 1, 488-490. Text Citation: Velleman, P. F. and Hoaglin, D. C. (1981). Applications, Basics, and Computing of Exploratory Data Analysis. Belmont. CA: Wadsworth, Inc., pp. 127-134. Authorization: free use Description: Data contains the mean annual temperature (in degrees F) and Mortality Index for neoplasms of the female breast. Data were taken from certain regions of Great Britain, Norway, and Sweden. Number of cases: 16 Variable Names: Mortality: Mortality index for neoplasms of the female breast Temperature: Mean annual temperature (in degrees F) In the early 1960s, data were collected from official statistics registers of Great Britain, Norway and Sweden on breast cancer mortality. Death rates for neoplasms of the breast were calculated for various age groups and for certain areas at the same latitude. Age-specific death rates were then calculated for each area and converted to a mortality index using 100 as the age-specific rate for all of England and Wales. The mean annual temperatures at various latitudes under study were obtained from the British Meteorological Office.

Shooting Homocides International Comparison
After shooting in Aurora, CO theater that killed numerous people and injured many more, I have seen several lists showing statistics related to guns and shooting deaths. This data is a bit stale, but represents a much larger set of countries for comparison. Also rather than presenting the number of shooting deaths (which can be misleading) it works with shooting deaths per 100,000 people per year. I have inserted data from the Facebook meme that I saw about this. I don't claim that this data is correct, but it seems more complete and cites sources. I apologize in advance if you feel the timing is inappropriate. Honestly, I can't think of a more appropriate time to have documented information about this topic since it seems a national dialogue might ensue. But it isn't my intention to cause additional grief to anyone.

HomicidesByCountry.xlsx
Steven Broad (sbroad@saintmarys.edu), a mathematics faculty member at Saint Mary’s College in Notre Dame, IN, collected this data in 2012 after the mass shooting in Aurora, CO, to help inform discussions about gun control. He used the web site http://www.guncite.com/gun_control_gcgvinco.html, which contains data about homicides from a number of countries, as his source of information to compile this data set for 38 countries. That web site references many other sources from which its data were obtained. There is no assumption that the 38 countries are selected at random, and www.guncite.com says that gun-related information tends to be unreliable. Additional data on guns per 100 population in 2014 were added by Anne Anderson from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Number_of_guns_per_capita_by_country.

Since 1995, Transparency International has published an annual Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) ordering the countries of the world according to "the degree to which corruption is perceived to exist among public officials and politicians".
