Freakonomics Review



We received a nice review from Steven Levitt of Freakonomics fame today.

Steven writes:

If you wanted to get elected President of the United States, which of these would you least like to be? (At least, according to the fraction of those surveyed who said they wouldn’t vote for a candidate with this characteristic):

a) Black

b) Catholic

c) Homosexual

d) Jewish

e) Female

f) Atheist

The answer is here at, an interesting site for finding, sharing, and presenting data.

While you’re browsing it you can see which colleges have the largest endowment per student (there is one in the top five that will shock you), homicide rates by country (guess where the United States ranks before looking), and much, much more.

Hats off to Tom Paper for creating such a great site.

My hats off to Jamie, Andrey, Alex, Stephanie, Andrew, Marshall, Lori, Brook and Eleanor for all their efforts in putting Data360 together.
