19. Wow you really need help with statistics, don't you?

 

If you're so sure of your facts, then please provide a graph that shows:

Rates per 100,000 and not totals.

The POS article you posted as fact is bogus, the graph misleads because it doesn't take into account population growth.

Your graph shows values for 1979 through 2011,

[font size=24]during which time the US population rose by 38.4%![/font size]

Add to that the fact that the dependent variable baseline value in your graph isn't zero, which further manipulates the presentation.

The truth is that rates are falling, falling, falling. The post and graph are failing, failing, failing.
