Here are some interesting conclusions we can draw from these statistics;

• violent crime is 7 and a half times higher on average in the 5 most atheistic EU nations compared to the 5 most theistic

• the sexual assault and rape (sexual violence) rate is 7 times higher in the average mean of the 5 most atheist EU nations V 5 most theist

• the theft rate is nearly 3 times higher (2.9) in the 5 most atheist EU nations compared to the 5 most theist

• the suicide rate is roughly double in the 5 most atheist nations compared to the 5 most theist

• the homicide rate is nearly a third higher among the 5 most atheist V 5 most theist nations

• drug related crime rate is over 3 times higher in the most atheistic nations

• the assault rate is 11 times higher among the 5 most atheist nations

• deaths related to drugs is two and a half times higher in the combined average of the most atheist nations versus the most theist

amazingly in every category of crime and death collated here the combined average of the most atheist nations is significantly higher than that of the combined average of the most theistic nations.

the greatest degrees of difference come in the level of assault (11 times higher), violent crime (7.5 times higher) and rape/sexual assault (7 times higher)
