Some statistics for (war)gamers from the Guardian

There's a lot of interesting stuff out there that doesn't end up in wargames blogs. I'd like to draw your attention to the Guardian's Datablog which does daily updates on all kinds of subjects as long as they can hang a database on it. The Guardian is one of the leading newsmedia in the use and visualisation of statistics, so worth your visit in any case. But they occasionally pick up war and wargame related stuff that I link through to here for your benefit:

Some of the benefits of the Guardian approach is that the datasets are available for everyone and documented. This makes them much more accessible and transparent than the official sources and so easier to use for the public.
