Hello! I have rolled back your edits in New Haven. I have no idea what you're trying to do with this edit, but the fact that New Haven is the 4th most dangerous city in the US is documented by NBC and dozens of other news sources. You cannot just remove it without discussion on the talk page. If your quibble is regarding Westville and East Shore vs. downtown and Wooster Square, you'll need to a valid source to bear that out, which is not spelled out in the ctdatahaven.org link. If you have any questions or want to disucss this, I'm happy to oblige. Best, Markvs88 (talk) 20:10, 7 June 2011 (UTC)
- Thank you for the comments. See discussion for a detail on why the blog source you (and the NBC TV station) were quoting is completely inaccurate. Please note that TV stations regularly make errors because their editing capacities are highly limited, and blogs like "24/7 Wall Street" are one man operations that seek to draw eyeballs to their webpage. Neither should be cited on Wikipedia as accurate sources of data or analysis.--Best, 71.235
- Hello again. As I cannot find any retractions by any media sources that posted the rankings, they stand as you're citing a blog to refute... pretty much every media outlet out there. If you can cite a retraction or something, then your removal of content is warrented. Alternatively, I am not opposed to you adding text to the contrary of my point, but it would have to be from a valid source -- New Haven Register, WTNH etc and not "ctdatahaven.org".

- The figures that you like were originally published by "24/7 Wall Street", an online blog that is run by one individual, and meant for consumption equity traders. "24/7 Wall Street" is in no ways a respected news or policy organization with transparent leadership. Furthermore, the figures were not originally "published" by any of the other sources you cite, and were not featured by the "Wall Street Journal" (some lazy editors have apparently confused that esteemed publication with the "24/7 Wall Street" blog). Please correct your information before posting inaccurate information here. Furthermore, according to the New Haven Register story published the next day, "The '24/7 Wall Street' report was not endorsed by the FBI, which cautions against comparing cities based on the UCR numbers, stating such analyses can be misleading or overly simplistic by failing to take in a range of factors that contribute to the numbers." Please see the piece at http://nhregister.com/articles/2011/06/03/opinion/doc4de95d1f01145208649566.txt for a correction. Also, note that unlike the "24/7" source that you are citing, DataHaven is not a "blog." It is an organization in New Haven that has existed for decades, is a 501(c)3 organization affiliated with the Urban Institute of Washington DC's NNIP program, and is transparently run by a Board of Directors consisting of University-based, foundation and civic leadership. Changes must be reinstated, as the information you have posted is simply not accurate.
