Beware of simple comparisons

Infographic-4-Odds-of-Prosecution

Just Speak have produced the infographic above.

The Herald reports:

Last night, Mrs Tolley said the group’s research had limitations as the figures did not show the number of offenders, the number of repeat offenders, the seriousness of the offence or an offender’s criminal history.

It is an interesting infographic, but as Anne Tolley says you can’t draw conclusions from it.

What I’d be interested to see is say a comparison by ethnicity for first-time offenders of the same age for the same offence.
