Catching Up in the Mexican Drug War
The Mexican government just released a detailed dataset on drug related crime by city and month. Anyone in for a paper on that, let me know! With above graph I take a quick glance, if there has been convergence in drug war deaths between Mexican regions over the period 2009-2010. It seems that regions with low intitial deaths in 2009, experienced relatively higher growth in deaths. Who is catching up on whom here?
