This section contains a variety of informative little nuggets which are best summarized as social data. Some are research findings, some are statistics, and some are information from the media. This odd category of social data highlights two things:  that we are treating the information here as good or accurate or at least as a very good approximation to the truth, and  that academic research is not the only way to establish what's happened but one of several methods of asserting that something is 'data'. Additionally, it shows how often sources of data actually intermingle, so, for example, government reports, academic research, and journalist investigation frequently appear together in the same final write-up.
In this section, we will store short articles, comments or notes. Just click on their titles to access. Some are written specifically for CrimeTalk. Some have been published elsewhere, but their authors or editors have given permission for them to be linked in here. So we are happy to re-publish them here as articles with social sharing buttons and 'add comment' buttons, enabling you to comment on or rate them yourself, or share them with friends and colleagues via Facebook, or tweet about them via Twitter.
Do feel free to enter comments on them: authors always appreciate constructive discussion! That's what the Add Comment button is for. Just register and log in first so that your name and photo/avatar display with the comment.
