Updated graph

Yesterday in “The Minneapolis Effect,” while citing City Crime Stats day-by-day data on homicides in a couple of dozen major American cities, I lamented that the University of Pennsylvania researchers hadn’t provided an aggregate graph summarizing all their cities, which could help distinguish between the validity of the crystallizing conventional wisdom that, well, yeah, there was a murder surge in 2020, but it was just bad luck due to covid, and nobody should even think that it might have anything to do with the George Floyd Racial Reckoning versus my view: of course BLM and the media and the politicians who encouraged the hundreds of Mostly Peaceful Riots are largely to blame.

In response, an old friend, the one who provided the data for my December Takimag column on excess deaths in the US during the pandemic, scraped the data for me from the City Crime Stats site.

The above graph shows pretty clearly the homicide trends over the course of 2020 vs. the average for the five previous years 2015-2019 across 19 cities for which CCS had day-by-day homicide stats through the end of September 2020. I created running totals for 2020 versus the average for 2015-2019. The red line represents the percentage change from the cumulative 2015-19 average to the cumulative 2020 total.

Because the the percentage difference during the earliest days of January bounces around wildly due to a small sample size, I didn’t start the graph until January 15, at which point the cumulative number of homicides in 2020 was 15% above the 2015-19 average.

The last few months of winter proved fairly violent, with the cumulative homicides so far in 2020 being 15% higher on March 16 than for the preceding five year average up through that data.

Why homicides were up in the winter of 2020 before the pandemic is hard to say. It could be a fluke — the winter sample size is small compared to the rest of the year. And, I suspect, that winter murder counts might tend to bounce up and down erratically depending upon how mild or harsh the weather is.

But, the day by day data shows that there was little direct cause-and-effect connection between the pandemic panic and 2020’s increase in murders.

San Francisco declared a lockdown on March 17 (blue vertical line on the graph), and much of the rest of urban America did too over the next couple of weeks.

Oddly, after an initial decline in murders, not much changed over the first ten weeks of pandemic panic. By Memorial Day, May 25, 2020’s cumulative homicides were running 14% ahead of 2015-19, down very slightly from the 15% before the first lockdown in mid-March.

This is not to say that the pandemic didn’t have long term effects on the murder rate. Perhaps lockdowns made people stir-crazy? Perhaps face masks contributed to the return of carjacking? Releases of prisoners due to fear of prison covid epidemics? One theory among the NYPD is that the aversion to the subways meant that bad people couldn’t get away from their bad neighborhoods when their bad neighbors started to get on their nerves. Domestic violence was expected to skyrocket, and that may have happened in Phoenix, but my impression is that it didn’t really happen as predicted most places.

It’s easy to come up with a lot of theories about the effect of coronavirus on murder, but the weird thing is that you can’t see them having much tangible effect through Memorial Day.

Memorial Day, of course, saw the fentanyl-assisted death of George Floyd (purple vertical line). By the time of the riots of the following weekend, the Great Murder Surge of 2020 was underway. The worst day for murders in 2020 prior to Memorial Day was 18, but 37 were murdered on Sunday, May 31, a day of massive Mostly Peaceful Protests. In Chicago alone, 17 were murdered that Sunday while looters ran amok. (My vague impression is that most of the increases in murdering in 2020 were not during riots per se, but due to the police being distracted by the MPP and then discouraged by the sudden decision on the part of influencers that every cop was a criminal and all the sinners saints.)

By Sunday, June 7, 13 days after George Floyd’s death, the difference between 2020 versus the average of 2015-2019 had risen from 14% to 20%.

Then the change in cumulative murders plateaued at this new high level through mid-June.

But a second national surge began about six days after the killing of Rayshard Brooks in Atlanta on June 12 after he stole a cop’s tazer and shot it at him.

By the Fourth of July, murders were up 23%, and by July 21, they were up 27%.

Then murders plateaued again until a third rise began about a week after the police shooting of the armed Jacob Blake in a domestic dispute in Kenosha on August 23.

For these 19 cities for which CCS has day by day data through the end of September, they ended the third quarter cumulatively up 30%.

Nationally, the largest ever one year increase in homicides was murderous 1968, when Martin Luther King’s assassination set off riots, at 12.7% followed by 2015 during the First BLM Era, when murders went up 12.1%. So, 2020 was the worst year for increase in homicides over the 60 years for which we have reliable data.

Here’s another way to graph the data, this time using 7-day moving averages:

I’m using a 7-day moving average of homicides across the 21 cities, with the average centered on the date: e.g., the 7-day moving average for July 4 would be the mean of the homicides counts from July 1 to July 7. The red line represents 2020, the blue line 2015-2019. The salmon-colored area is the difference the two time periods.

As you can see, the winter before lockdowns began on March 17th was modestly more homicidal than the previous half-decade’s average. The first few weeks of the pandemic saw a sharp fall in murders, followed by a big surge around April 7 (concentrated in Chicago, Houston, and Baltimore). Then nothing much happened out of the ordinary happened until late May.

The first weekend of Mostly Peaceful Riots saw a huge surge, especially in Chicago. Then, during the second week of June, the 7-day-moving average briefly fell to be no higher than the previous 5 years average. But then as the Rayshard Brooks Riots spread nationwide and the The Establishment doubled down on the idea that rioters and arrest-resisters were the Good Guys and the forces of rule of law were the Bad Guys, 2020’s murder surge returned. From June 15 through September 30, when the data collection period expires, the seven day moving average of homicides was worse than over the previous half decade in every single day.

    Minor point: It would be a good idea to make the x-axis at y=0 bolder than the other horizontal lines coming out of the y-axis, or to in some other way make more obvious that the graph spans a negative to positive range (decrease to increase). Unlike most non-zero y-axis graph problems, this one at a glance minimizes what you are trying to show, rather than exagerate it.

    Oh hi Steve! This story in today’s WSJ made me think of you….

    The Padres Owe Fernando Tatís Jr. $340 Million. He Owes an Investment Fund Millions From His Payday.
    As an 18-year-old, Tatís made a deal with Big League Advance, which advances pay to minor league players in exchange for a slice of their MLB earnings. Now it’s time to pay.

    https://www.wsj.com/articles/fernando-tatis-jr-340-million-investment-fund-padres-11613732572

    [MORE]

    Fernando Tatís Jr. was 18 years old, just a low-level prospect from the Dominican Republic trying to work his way up in the San Diego Padres farm system, when he made a financial deal that would impact his entire baseball career. And it wasn’t with the Padres.

    Tatís signed a contract with Big League Advance, an unusual investment fund that pays minor-league players money up front in exchange for a share of their future MLB earnings.

    Tatís, now 22 and widely viewed as one of the sport’s best young stars, today knows what those earnings will be. He agreed to a record-setting 14-year contract with the Padres on Wednesday night worth an eye-popping $340 million, the third-highest total in MLB history.

    His new contract also creates a significant obligation for Tatís: to pay a sizable chunk of his new bounty—perhaps close to $30 million—to Big League Advance.

    Tatís’s arrangement is the most high-profile payday yet for Big League Advance and the unorthodox financial instrument it has created.

    Big League Advance began raising money in 2015 and made its first investment in a player in 2016. The company’s founder and CEO, Michael Schwimer, is a University of Virginia graduate who pitched in 47 games for the Philadelphia Phillies in 2011 and 2012.

    Schwimer declined to reveal how much the fund gave to Tatís as a minor-league player or how large of a stake Big League Advance has in his major-league earnings.

    However, he said Big League Advance’s average pact with players is for around 8%. In the case of Tatís, that would add up to $27.2 million. Representatives for Tatís declined to comment.

    Yes, the lock-down caused excess deaths for sure. Covid-19, not so much.

  11. Woody Allen is in trouble.

  12. Steve, there isn’t much doubt–has never been much doubt–about the cause of the 2020 murder surge.

    It’s the same cause as the 2014-2016 BLM murder surge: minoritarianism.

    I.e. the media’s full on campaign that barbarous white gentiles are on their endless pogrom against poor innocent black folks … who take their very lives in their hands whenever they venture near a white person. The timeline is simply incontrovertible.

    This particular iteration, was no doubt jacked up by the desire to energize blacks to vote for the dreary and boring–but thorough money men (big finance/big tech) compliant–Joe Biden. And drew some extra energy from all the young people unemployed by the pandemic.

    But this is nothing new. It’s a 50+ year assualt–of lies and propaganda–on the white gentile population that built America, their right to have their own norms and culture, to enjoy their own stuff, to govern themselves. An assualt on the American nation.

    Speaking of which, the 1am – 5am “deep cleaning” (ha ha!) system shutdown is soon to be reduced to 2am – 4am. In part it’s because a 5am reopening is too late for many riders to get to work. There’s also a realization that if the cops can’t get the skells out of the system in a two-hour period there’s not much more they can do in four hours.

  25. Travis says:

    Government lockdowns shuttered schools and businesses which helped fuel the massive protest across America last year. Millions of people out of a job and stuck at home for months was a recipe for civil unrest. The lockdown orders imposed by governors caused millions to lose their jobs while closing schools and forbidding all social gatherings resulted in millions of frustrated, socially isolated people which helped fuel the massive protests across the nation.

    In 2014, we had Ferguson. This was followed by the Baltimore riots a year later. And yet, while these killings sparked BLM protests, serious rioting and property damage were contained to the cities where the shootings actually happened. Not so in the case of the Floyd death, which prompted intense protests, riots, and police violence in almost every American city.

    The protests in response to Floyd’s death provided the only opportunity for millions of bored, frustrated, and out-of-work Americans to let off some steam. With no bar or party to go to on the weekend, no schools to attend and no job, why not engage in protesting? The only acceptable social gathering allowed for months was attending BLM protests. Without the lockdowns the BLM protests would never have spread from Minneapolis to New York City to Seattle…

    Millions of jobless Americans did not have to show up to work or school in the morning, and who therefore had less of a disincentive to participate in protests. At the same time, all of the social alternatives to protesting remained officially closed. Concerts, sporting events, and other forms of mass gatherings were prohibited nationwide. Yet the BLM protests were permitted while all other gatherings were banned.

    It was not the pandemic but the extended lockdowns which fueled the nationwide protests after Floyd’s death in May. Millions of people cut-off from normal social interactions for months created pent up frustrations and the BLM protests were the only way for millions to vent their frustration and interact with others.

    The cleanliness is not really an issue. You can get iodine and filters. But just having any water may be beneficial in CA, I’d imagine.

  49. @Steve Sailer

    The graph of the %difference in two cumulative trends is useful and informative so I think that it should be shown, along with finite-window e.g., 7 day moving averages. I have no brilliant suggested alternatives — but maybe a somewhat longer moving average window like 28 days might be better?

    The standard error of estimation for the %difference in two cumulative trends grows with the length of the cumulation period (if the day-by-day data has independent errors). There is nothing wrong in showing it but readers should be aware it tends to wander off naturally a little bit over time. The observed trend in the % difference between cumulative figures has to be stronger than implied by the natural growth of the standard error, in order for it to be significant. It is just a minor point of caution.

    The problem for white liberal goodie goodie twitterati media establishment types is that IT IS AT THE VERY LEAST A REASONABLE HYPOTHESIS that the increase in murders has been brought about, at least in part, by the trouble and strife that followed the death of Mr Floyd. OTOH goodie goodie whites have to pretend to believe, and try to apply social pressure to intimidate normal people to pretend to believe too, that the cause is one hundred per cent to do with the CoronaVirus.

    The same is true with the controversy that surrounds Race and IQ. Given that Orientals have larger brains than whites, score higher on IQ tests than whites, do all those things that we associate with having a high IQ, doing well at school, committing fewer crimes, etcetera. Given all this and more, it is at the very least a reasonable hypothesis, worth exploring, that Orientals are more intelligent than white people for Racial genetic reasons. But white goodie goodies have to claim it is 100% environmental and no genetic factors play any part whatsoever.

    Of course we all know these theories are more than just reasonable hypotheses, but that is all the ground that the truth affirmers want to take from the liberal reality deniers, but libtards know that their arguments are so feeble that they cannot concede even that.

    “Millions of people out of a job and stuck at home for months was a recipe for civil unrest.”

    The kind of people inclined to commit murder and property damage of the scale we saw are not people who in normal times are gainfully employed.

  52. Jiminy says:

    Look on the bright side, it could be worse. In South Africa last year it was 58 people murdered every day. Looking at the graph, this year is set to be worse.

  53. Thank heaven they were mostly peaceful riots! Imagine how bad it could have been.

  54. Dan Smith says:

    Look at the graph this way: it represents all the murders prevented by active policing before the post Memorial weekend stand down. You’re welcome, black people.

  55. unit472 says:

    San Francisco leftists have been pondering the surge in crime too.

    “San Francisco Supervisor Hillary Ronen, District Attorney Chesa Boudin, and the captain of the police department overseeing the area, held a virtual town hall with residents of the community Wednesday night to address their concerns.

    They attribute what they say is an increase in crime to “economic desperation” and “tourism has gone down so substantially in San Francisco that criminal rings that targeted tourists in areas that tourists frequent no longer have tourists there,” said Supervisor Ronen.”

    While not exactly reassuring to the residents of San Francisco these public officials do have a point. If the predators normal prey disappears predators look for new prey and are willing to take greater risks to find it.

    My incarcerated relative watched them go. All of the rest of guys were excited to think, “Will I get out next?!”

    Alas, no. They could have sprung the old farts who would just go home to watch TV and die, but that would make too much sense.

  57. So the three most murderous annual jumps were 1968 (MLK), 2015 (BLM) and 2020 (GF). Why, it’s almost as if American society has a manageably consistent level of violence except for the eruptions of black-inspired unrest

    Yeah, well, menopause is not fun for anyone, but worse for some than others.

    History will regard the Lockdowns as the manifestations of mass hysteria a product of pseudoscience promoted by the oligarchs to destroy the working class and restore the power of deep state. The destruction of the economy and bankrupting small businesses were the reason for the lockdowns, rioting and civil unrest were additional benefits which helped elect a new regime with unlimited powers to control the people and dismantle our freedoms.

  60. It would be good if your friend could scrape down even deeper & see if there is any relationship between prisoner Covid releases & violence.

    Also, I read somewhere – I’ve lost the URL – that “experts” were surprised by the situation in a Massachusetts prison. Covid had swept through the population, but most of the prisoners (a) didn’t know they’d been infected (b) survived just fine. I remember it because at the time I thought the virus was a virtual death sentence.

    It turned out to be a death sentence alright but not for the prisoners.

  61. I apologize but Sailer asked about this. His finding is reliably statistically significant using best practice.

    I computed a bootstrapped 99% confidence critical value for the change in new/old cumulative gun deaths between May 27th and September 39th (120 days) assuming that May 27th is the 134th recorded day. I cumulated random histories and for each one took the ratio new/old on the 134th day and the 260th day.

    The actual difference between 2020 and past year’s cumulative gun deaths grew from 12% on May 27th to 30% on September 30th. The difference is 18%.

    [MORE]

    In randomly drawn histories (randomly bootstrapping the day ordering from the two 260-day records of gun deaths) this difference will not exceed 9.39% with 99% confidence.

    So the observed difference of 18% is statistically significant with 99% confidence.

    Do you have a water filter? I think that’s a useful addition to the emergency kit. The backpacking versions are probably best, but even a Brita etc. is probably better than nothing.

    Nice work, Steve (and friend). Thanks!

    So, 2020 was the worst year for increase in homicides over the 60 years for which we have reliable data.

    By over 2x (if the trend continues through the end of the year and is representative of the country) if I understand correctly. 30% vs. 12.7%.

    This seems like a good topic to revisit once the full year statistics are available.

    For these 19 cities for which CCS has day by day data through the end of September, they ended the third quarter cumulatively up 30%.

    Nationally, the largest ever one year increase in homicides was murderous 1968, when Martin Luther King’s assassination set off riots, at 12.7% followed by 2015 during the First BLM Era, when murders went up 12.1%. So, 2020 was the worst year for increase in homicides over the 60 years for which we have reliable data.

    Thinking about this some more, I think you want to wait for the full year national statistics before making that comparison. Do you have the full data set for those 60 years? It would be interesting to see the distribution of the annual changes.

    Would probably be worth doing an analysis of both relative and absolute changes since there is so much variation yearly.

    I don’t really trust the pre-WWII data there. This paper has much information on those earlier periods.

    Lockdowns AND St. Fentynol = murder.

    Burn.Loot.Murder

  67. Mr. Anon says:

    I can imagine that the lockdowns might have made some contribution to the increased murder-rate. There would have been a delay – it’s not like people get cabin fever on day one. That delay would have had to have been at least two months. And, if there was an effect, it was pretty clearly masked by the Summer-of-Floyd festivities.

    However, I think it very likely that the lockdowns contributed to the severity and wide scale of the George Floyd “peaceful protests”, which was even international in scope. There was a lot of pent-up energy, and a lot of people who didn’t have to be somewhere the next day. The unemployed, certainly, but perhaps even a lot of those people who were teleworking. When your teleworking, nobody really knows how you spend your time.

    Oops. Wrong mountain. There is one within the city of Los Angeles, Mt Lukens, which is higher than anything in 28 states.

    https://www.peakbagger.com/list.aspx?lid=193

    https://www.peakbagger.com/list.aspx?lid=12003

    Clingman’s Dome is about 1,600 ft higher. The other nine states on the Mississippi don’t have anything close to Mt Lukens. Kentucky comes the closest with Black Mountain (blacks are 0.5% of the surrounding county), but that still almost a thousand feet shorter.

    I don’t completely blame the transit authority for the overnight shutdown. Skells had completely infested the trains, and so long as the trains were in service it was legally difficult for the police to eject them.

  71. @Mr. Anon

    People can mean different things when saying that “lockdowns caused the rise in crime.” A lot of arguments happen because people don’t clarify how that mean that phrase. Some are probably not even clear their own minds how they mean it.

    1) There is first of all the “poverty motivates crime” thesis which has been widely promoted by Democrats. This argues that if the lockdowns put people out of work then they feel motivated to commit crime as a way of feeding their children. Hence what they really need is not a prison sentence but a welfare check.

    This model can be represented as:

    Lockdown => Poverty => Crime

    2) Then there is the “anarchy enables crime” thesis which I hesitate to attribute to anyone but would normally be more readily associated with a conservative (if not Republican) view. This argues that if people are allowed to ransack stores as a form of reparations for slavery while others tear down statues as a form of LARPing for the 1960s, then the hardened criminals will feel emboldened to go and commit even more severe crimes.

    According to this latter view the people committing escalated murders are not doing it because they need to steal food to nourish a deprived infant. They simply feel that it is now easier for them to get away with something which they wanted to do anyway. Hence the causal chain is:

    Lockdown => Anarchy => Lawlessness => Crime

    Myself, I see a lot of applicability of Model 2. Not so much for Model 1.

    Name one ethnic group I have ever “flung slurs” at. Mick, frog, and kraut are endearing terms, like limey, Canuck and Yankee.

    to promote the genocide of his people

    Exactly how is expelling states and counties for insufficient whiteness “the genocide of his people” (i.e., the Anglo-Saxons)? How is 97% white worse than 54% white? It’s better by definition!

    The way to combat genocide is to treat contraceptives like gun rights– appropriate for some races but not for others. Races that need contraceptives more than guns don’t belong here, again, by definition.

    And I’m a “troll” for bringing up the 1811 New Madrid earthquake, the worst in US history. Or was it for directing relocators to lily-white eastern Tennessee?

  73. @Spud Boy

    The protestors arrested in NYC were wealthy college students, lawyers (busted tossing bombs) and teachers instigating violence. Most of the protestors across America were not loony antifa losers. Many were students , who would have been at college and many were teachers I worked with. About half the staff at my high school proudly sent me pictures of them at these protests and many of my students attended these protests. But thanks to the schools being closed they had the time to protest. Many of them would not have bothered protesting if they still had jobs and school.

  74. @Patrick McNally

    Bloody Sunday in Chicago, May 31, 2020, when 17 murders were reported was, I believe, during the looting of the Loop and the Magnificent Mile. I don’t know how many murders directly happened during the riots vs indirectly caused (e.g., the cops are all downtown, now would be a good time to kill that guy who has always gotten on my nerves) vs indirectly psychologically caused: the racial reckoning is here, let’s party! Hey, that guy eating BBQ dissed me. You can’t diss a proud black man during the racial reckoning. Would George Floyd have put up with it? Where’d I put my gun?

    But studying all the murders that day in Chicago might provide some clues.

    I wasn’t talking about crime in general, but just rioting and looting. And what I meant was:

    Lockdown => Freetime and restless energy => Rioting and Looting

    They attribute what they say is an increase in crime to “economic desperation” and “tourism has gone down so substantially in San Francisco that criminal rings that targeted tourists in areas that tourists frequent no longer have tourists there,” said Supervisor Ronen.”

    Not having criminals prey on tourists should be job #1 for city leaders of San Francisco but since these are the sacrificial lambs they’ve run out of they now recognize the problem?! It’s all a mystery why that city has so fast become a shit-hole.

    Why are Asians in the US a lot more violet than Asians in Asia, considering that even before the 90s, the US is not really getting the lower quality immigrants from Asia? And why are whites in the US a lot more violent than whites in Western Europe? And poorer white states in the US like Kentucky and West Virginia tend to be more violent than richer white states in the US like Vermont and Maine, whereas this is not the case in Western Europe, where poorer countries like Italy and Spain are not more violent than richer countries like Germany, Belgium, and the UK. Countries like Slovenia, Spain, and Italy are as violent as the least violent US states.

    “Black Teen Travels to White Suburb to Commit Mass Shooting, Mainstream Media Remains Silent”

    While the shooter is still on the run and the motive remains unknown, what is known is that Jamel Barnwell travelled from inner-city West Philly to the overwhelmingly white suburb of East Norton in order to perpetrate a random mass shooting at the town’s local popular hangout, Our Town Alley.
