Unexpectedly Intriguing!
February 1, 2006

Eugene Volokh recently took a college newspaper to task for its poor handling of numerical data that, if the reporters and editors had been more numerically literate, would have saved them the embarrassment of discovering that the numbers they published in connection with the number of rapes occurring in the U.S. were highly unrealistic.

That's why Political Calculations(TM) is proud to offer the following tool, which takes a number and a corresponding period of time, and does all the math needed to figure out what the corresponding statistic would be for other periods of time!

Number and Frequency
Input Data Values
Number
Frequency (per Time Interval)


Corresponding Number per Other Time Intervals
Calculated Results Values
Number per Second
Number per Minute
Number per Hour
Number per Day
Number per Week
Number per Month
Number per Year
Number per Decade
Number per Century
Number per Millennium

While this tool won't help the typical college journalist (or for that matter, a professional one) realize what a realistic number might be, at least now, they don't have any excuses for not getting the math right....
