Well there are lies, damn lies, and statistics. The first thing that even a superficial interest in politics teaches you is that you can manipulate statistics to misrepresent almost anything.
I remember having the police over here after my ex physically abused me in front of the children; he asked me "are you scared of her", baring in mind I''d just been physically abused, and I said "yes". He smirked a bit and said "No, you have to be ACTUALLY scared of her", I said "well I am", then he said.... "look, do you think she might kill you?" and I said "I''m not sure, but I guess no.... unless she''s in a temper".
The policeman looked at me and smirked again and said "I think it''s a no, really isn''t it?" so I said "ok"... but I was still in shock.
Depends if the statistics come from a organisation that is bias or not maybe.
