Documentary As Advocacy: Some Factual Issues in Ava DuVernay’s “13th”.

  1. For your first point, you are discounting that after 1994 crimes rates went up from 1994–1997. Also did you look up the rates based on crime .i.e. drug, violence, etc.
  2. Current rate is 2.3 million incarceration.
  3. You used data which only included state, federal and local, this does not include other which includes detention center and youth correction. This can have an impact on the percentage. Given the 35.7 /40.2 the margin of error is 4.5, which is not bad.
