NEWS and RESEARCH - Shows Attended by USDA in 2008 with Inspection Results

click here for the original pdf.

I had a hard time comparing the two different tables, though. So, I have compiled the data in a new format so we can see all the data for each show in one continuous table. Click here for the table. I apologize for having to scroll--I'm going to work on finding another format for this table...

In the meantime, we can see a very fascinating correlation going on here. If we take the total number of entries in the shows that the USDA attended and compare that to the total number of violations, we get 95% compliance.

304 violations/6,025 entries = 95% compliance

However, if we take the total number of horses actually inspected and compare that number to the total number of violations, we get 83% compliance.

304 violations/1,781 inspected = 83% compliance

It's interesting how the numbers can be manipulated, isn't it?
