not sure if this is TV or social issues, but it discussed social issues.
It was fascinating - I guess you could say it was about two mathematicians who proposed social theories and then used stats to show them as plausible? But it was also really funny in parts.
I can't for the life of me remember what it is called and I saw it months ago. Anyone know??
The two topics I really remember where
-correlation between names and socioeconomic demographics (basically certain names start out in upper socioeconimic groups and then filter down to lower socioeconomics groups. Depending on when you child was named something would also be reflective of their/your socioeconimic background. It also showed that this influenced future employement/salary opportunities. It was US, so they also looked at 'typical African American names' vs 'anglo names' and job opportunities for both.
-coorelation between legalised abortion/crime rates
the world over where you see abortion legalised 18-25yrs later you will see a significant drop in crimes rates. Conversly, where it is made illegal you will see crime rates increase 18-25yrs later.
It didn't say any of this was 100%, it just proposed all sorts of interesting things and used science to show it was plausable cause and effect.
Anyone if someone knows what its called can you let me know I would love to watch it again.
