These data are crime-related and demographic statistics for 47 US states in 1960. The data were collected from the FBI's Uniform Crime Report and other government agencies to determine how the variable crime rate depends on the other variables measured in the study.
In May, 1978, Brink's Inc. was awarded a contract to collect coins from some 70,000 parking meters in New York City for delivery to the City Department of Finance. Sometime later the City became suspicious that not all of the money collected was being returned to the city. In April of 1978 five Brink's collectors were arrested and charged with grand larceny. They were subsequently con- victed. The city sued Brink's for negligent supervision of its employees, seeking to recover the amount stolen. As the fact of theft had been established, a reason- able estimate of the amount stolen was acceptable to the judge. The data below was provided by the City's attorney.
