Seems to me the same correlation can be made on violent crime and teen pregnancies, too!

Oh, come on, Loren. You mean you think all that "abstinence-based sex ed." (sic) isn't working???

Thanks for posting this.

It'd be interesting to try to figure out what's happening with the outliers, such as Iceland, Idaho, and Delaware being more innovative than the correlation would suggest. (Note that that's after controlling for population, educational levels, and other factors.)

I wonder if Delaware's data unduly reflects the state as "home" to many corporations!

The stupid Netherlands are slipping backwards: years and years of cuts in education!
