A quick post for Makeover Monday this week. We had data on NFL player arrests from 2000 to August 2017 with the aim to makeover the interactive visualisation here. Whilst exploring the data I was interested to see the free text outcome data. After grouping this I was surprised to see that the proportion of guilty outcomes seemed to be reducing over time whilst the proportion with an undetermined outcome was increasing . In hindsight you’d expect more recent cases to not yet be determined – perhaps they haven’t yet worked through the system? Still I suspect that there is a story here. Of course that story may not be specific to NFL player arrests and I haven’t checked for similar stats across the wider population.
