CrimeIndex

CrimeIndex measures the likelihood of 11 types of crime occurrence for all block groups in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Crime is categorized according to the FBI’s definitions of crime.

 

Each crime variable includes both a numerical score, where higher values denote a higher likelihood of crime occurrences, and a qualitative categorization that helps explain the numerical crime score probability. Qualitative scores are derived from the final numerical results where the 10th, 25th, 50th, 75th, and 90th percentile distributions reflect “Lowest, Low, Below Average, Above Average, High, and Highest” respectively.
