A hypothetical 50 percent increase in the average size of criminal DNA profile databases has a statistically significant effect on crime rates. For instance, if the US in 2008 had increased its number of DNA profiles from about 177 to 266 per 10,000 residents, that would have cut the number of murders in 2010 by 415 out of 12,996 reported.
