Communities and Crime Data
Transcript of Communities and Crime Data
design by Dóri Sirály for Prezi
What is this data?
A collection of data from the 1990 US Census, 1990 Law Enforcement Management and Administrative Statistics Survey, and crime data from the 1995 FBI Uniform Crime Report.
Analysis to find connections between an array of variables versus and violent crimes per capita (murder, rape, robbery, assault).
The explanatory variables are normalized.
The LEMAS dataset is tertiary to census and FBI crime datasets due to shortages
Controversy around counting of rape in certain cities
The Data: Negative Correlation
The Data: Uncorrelated
The Data: Positive Correlation
What does it mean?
From this data we are able to see correlations between certain variables and crime allowing for trend analysis.
Can see the diagnostic signs of 'at-risk' individuals and can provide government intervention where it may be helpful.
Note of caution with correlation vs. causation.
