John Lott - Peer review "almost certainly more so than any other paper in the field"



For those nay-sayers

..One of the normal standards for quality is peer review. Lott's research has
certainly received that; almost certainly more so than any other paper in
the field. Although some researchers don't release their actual research
data, and a few explicitly refuse to do so (including at least a few of
those whose research tends to drive pro gun-control public policy), John
Lott seems to have promptly released the actual data behind his published
research to academic researchers at 42 different universities. In terms of
the scope of their studies, Lott and Mustard examined data from all 3,054
counties in the United States, from 1977 to 1994.
