How is it that just because I charged up my credit card that I go rape and murder people?
Although now that its not seasonally adjusted, I see the data looks even better than before for my point of view.
People do not have to take out mortgages - they can rent. People do not have to buy fancy new cars - they can buy a car for $3,000 or less, or take public transportation
First, what's a pyramid scheme? Why do people "run for the hills" at

Americans income has gone up, even adjusted for cost of living and inflation. Americans make more money than ever. They have more debt too. Mostly because they choose to.

Consider other characteristics of a jurisdiction
To assess criminality and law enforcement’s response from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, one must consider many variables, some of which, while having significant impact on crime, are not readily measurable or applicable pervasively among all locales. Geographic and demographic factors specific to each jurisdiction must be considered and applied if one is going to make an accurate and complete assessment of crime in that jurisdiction. Several sources of information are available that may assist the responsible researcher in exploring the many variables that affect crime in a particular locale. The U.S. Census Bureau data, for example, can be used to better understand the makeup of a locale’s population. The transience of the population, its racial and ethnic makeup, its composition by age and gender, educational levels, and prevalent family structures are all key factors in assessing and comprehending the crime issue.
