Introduction

Hypothesis: I believe that the more jails that there are in a country then the less total crimes will occur. Because there is more room to have people Imprisoned, there will be more jail time sentences given out to criminals who commit crimes Variables: The two variables we will be looking at are the Total Number of Jails and the Total Number of Crimes. Total Number of Jails is the amount of prisons and other systems a country has in place in order to hold criminals in custody. The total number of crimes relates to the total crimes ever committed in a country. Both of these variables are discrete, as they are both counted.

Connections: I believe these two are directly related to each other. With more jails available, fewer criminals will be on the streets. If there is more room for criminals to go to jail, court systems will be more likely to sentence them to jail time then release them due to no room in jails. When you think of criminals, you immediately think of prison, so it’s an easy connection to make.
