In an article about crime in the United States, Newsweek

In an article about crime in the United States, Newsweek (Jan. 10, 1994) quoted FBI statistics for 1992 stating that of blacks slain, 94% were slain by blacks, and of whites slain, 83% were slain by whites. Let Y = race of victim and X = race of murderer. Which conditional distribution do these statistics refer to, Y | X. or X | Y? What additional information would you need to estimate the probability that the victim was white given that a murderer was white? Find and interpret the odds ratio.
