True Crime: Part 1


Part 1 of the Commercial Appeal’s True Crime series has been published at last.

A lot of work went into the project and the result is many different components. You can head directly to the project page, or if there’s too much to wrap your head around you can use this handy road map instead.

Don’t miss the major story component:

Homicides get the headlines, but theft, robbery, assault are more likely to happen in Memphis

For the project I analyzed about 9 years worth of separate data from the Memphis Police Department: incident data from July 2000-May 2009 and arrest data from July 2000-April 2009.
