TM Decreases Crime in US cities

Twenty-four cities in which 1% of the population began Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation program by 1972 displayed significant decreases in crime rate during the next year (1973) and a decreased crime rate trend during the subsequent five years (1972-1977 in comparison to 1967-1972). In contrast, crime rate increased in 24 matched control cities. The FBI Uniform Crime Index is publicly available data from an independent source.
