The Data

Summary: I lost my wallet. That made me curious about what kind of person doesn’t return a found wallet. So, I got 200 wallets and dropped them in 10 cities to collect data to rank the honesty of the cities and to build a profile of an honest person. We looked at variables such as male v. female, age, high income v. low income, religious v. non-religious, small town v. big town.
