Abstract
The theme for this analysis comes directly as an assignment from Svensk Elitfotboll (SEF) with the purpose to analyze and compare violence crime rate between high risk football matches and festivals. The reason for this is that SEF has come to believe that football matches tend to be described as more dangerous to the public than festivals and therefore giving the whole experience of going to see football live a somewhat bad and most unfair publicity.

The theme for this analysis comes directly as an assignment from Svensk Elitfotboll (SEF) with the purpose to analyze and compare violence crime rate between high risk football matches and festivals. The reason for this is that SEF has come to believe that football matches tend to be described as more dangerous to the public than festivals and therefore giving the whole experience of going to see football live a somewhat bad and most unfair publicity.

Poisson regression is used to analyze which of the two events tend to affect the amount of violence crimes in four different Swedish cities the most, the cities being Stockholm, Göteborg, Malmö and Helsingborg. The data comes from the Swedish police and contains reported number of violence crimes from 2010 - 2015.

Our conclusion is that both high risk football matches and festivals tend to make the violence crime rate go up compared to dates when neither of them occurs. There is no significant difference in effect between the two events which makes SEF’s assumptions correct. (Less)
