This paper analyzes the impact of weather variables on rates of violence in six prisons in Kingston, Ontario. The methodology used is forward inclusion multiple regression. Conclusions drawn include that indices of geo-magnetic disturbances have statistically significant inverse relationships with attempted suicides/self-inflicted injury rates among male prisoners during the summer months. Consistent differences between male and female prisons were found. Extensive tables are included.
