Statistics Topic

This plugin created for CODAP links to data from the Fatal Encounters website. This website was created as an effort to document people in the United States who were killed during interactions with the police. The data ranges from 2000-2021. The plugin opens in CODAP. Users can subset the data by choosing states they are interested in as well as years. The original dataset has over 35,000 people included in it. Students who open the data via CODAP can quickly make graphs to explore variables of interest.
