Peace Index for Dec 2012 into Jan 2013: Where will the New Year lead?

Our daily peace index, PAXi, is designed to describe the amount of energy and discussion devoted to peace and antiwar sentiment in The United States each day.

We are looking forward to seeing what the PAXi number for January 1, 2013 will be. We are hoping that many people will wish for peace, and make resolutions about peace, so that the number will be high. [Update: The PAXi for January 1, 2013 is 160. So, PAXi went down a little from yesterday. It’s somewhat disappointing. Though, sometimes there is simply “less on-line discussion” for holidays, which makes the indicators lower. So, there is a chance that the next few days may show different directions for PAXi, and/or more visible discussion about peace.]

(The low for PAXi has been 131. The high for PAXi has been 979.)

This is what PAXi looked like for
Dec 2012 into the New Year:

Started out on December 1st at 156.

On Christmas Day, December 25th, PAXi was at 164.

The high for December was 177, reached on December 27th.

On December 31st, PAXi was at 168.

New Year’s Day, Jan. 1, 2013 PAXi is at 160.

Jan 2, 2013: PAXi climbs 8 to 168.

Jan 3, 2013: PAXi at 166

Peace Index climbs on September 11th

Peace is difficult to quantify. Though, we have been trying to measure it somewhat with our PAXi Index, the Daily Peace Culture Index for the United States.

PAXi began on July 15th. The PAXi for that day was 131, the lowest PAXi has been in its two month history. In the last few weeks, PAXI has hovered at the 140’s and 150’s. The highest number so far has been 158. Until today…

Today, on the anniversary of the September 11th tragedy, PAXi has jumped up to 337. Continue reading Peace Index climbs on September 11th
