Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
No, I'm saying that all your averages and standard deviations should be weighted by the denominators that went into your ratios.

And your comparisons of conviction rates are pure, mean-spirited garbage, because there are still cases outstanding which will in all probability change most of those figures significantly. Compare indictments, or break down the indictments into convictions, acquittals and outstanding cases, if you like to. But using only convictions is nonsense as long as there are cases outstanding.
