Violent Crimes by State
http://www.census.gov/statab/ranks/rank21.html State Rankings -- Statistical Abstract of the United States VIOLENT CRIMES 1 PER 100,000 POPULATION -- 2006 [When states share the same rank, the next lower rank is omitted. Because of rounded data, states may have identical values shown, but different ranks. Cautionary note] Cautionary note about rankings The ranks in some tables are based on estimates derived from a sample(s). Because of sampling and nonsampling errors associated with the estimates, the ranking of the estimates does not necessarily reflect the correct ranking of the unknown true values. Thus, caution should be used when making inferences or statements about the states' true values based on a ranking of the estimates. As an example, the estimated total (average, percent, ratio, etc.) for State A may be larger than the estimates for all other states. This does not necessarily mean that the true total (average, percent, ratio, etc.) for State A is larger than those for all other states. Such an inference typically depends on --among other factors-- the size of the difference(s) between the estimates in question, and the size of their associated standard errors. In other tables, the ranks are based on a complete enumeration of the target population, or on complete administrative reporting from the population. In such cases, sampling is not used, and there is no sampling error component in the estimates. Still, care should still be taken when making inferences or statements based on the rankings. The table values may still exhibit nonsampling error originating from such sources as coverage problems (missing units or duplicates), nonresponse, misreporting, and others.

FIFA World Cup Players
In 2010 the world was abuzz with interest over the FIFA World Cup of Soccer tournament. Going into the tournament 32 national teams were ranked by FIFA based on their results in FIFA recognized games. Better teams receive lower rankings (number 1 is the best team). In general we might not expect soccer players to be exceptionally tall, since being tall does not necessarily give someone an advantage the way it would in a sport like basketball. However, one position where height might make a difference is at the goal keeper position. A taller goal keeper might be able to reach out farther to stop the ball. One might wonder if better teams have larger more physically imposing goal keepers. To explore this question we might examine a scatterplot of the height of the goal keepers and their team’s rankings.
