Provider: Applied Geographic Solutions
This geographic database consists of standardized indices for various crimes against persons and property that come from an analysis of crime reports to most law enforcement jurisdictions nationwide. The data is available at the block group level and higher, allowing the user to perform large scale or more granular analysis.
Crimes that are included in the database are murder, rape, robbery, assault, burglary, theft, and motor vehicle theft. Less serious crime risk data is also available, though only for selected areas and at higher levels of geography. Aggregate indices are also available for personal and property crimes separately, as well as a total index.
Caution should be used, however, when using aggregated crime risk data because crimes are unweighted, meaning that the database treats a murder and purse snatching the same during computation.
