The Popularity of the World's First Consulting Detective... In Charts!

Sherlock Holmes through the data, by Adam Frost and James Kynvin.

Does statistical evidence takes the fun out of it for you?

BTW, this isn't the first time Messrs Frost and Kynvin have sussed out data to try to figure out the whys of events. Here's their take on the likelihood of winning the Mann Booker Prize.

And here is how Mr. Frost, Mr. Kynvin, and Jamie Lenman diagram Edgar Allan Poe's macabre death scenes.  Fun for the whole family!
