Part three (four?) in my ongoing series of dives into stats, looking for evidence that the statement “cis white males are responsible for the violence in the world” explores the relationship between Offender and Victim, where the victim is a Family Member of the Offender, for Offences in the year to March 2023. These are Offences recorded, not necessarily Court Proceedings (though most are).
The Police Stats Database is the source of the Offender data, and StatsNZ/Census 2018 is the source of the Population size data.
The “per-100k” graphs show us how many offences are committed for every 100,000 people in each ethnic group, it corrects for population size.
TL:DR – I tried my best, but, looking at the data, I still can’t conclusively confirm that “cis white males are responsible for the violence in the world” is an accurate statement. Can you?
