Crime rates are of great interest to policy makers as well as citizens. After all, who wants to live
in an area with a high crime rate? When you calculate crime rates, you are able to compare
cities, states, and countries of different sizes. For example, suppose city A has a population of
120,000 and city B has a population of 500,000. The preceding year, city A had 250 incidents of
murder and city B had 400. On reading this, you may think that you want to live in city A
because it was host to fewer murders. However, when you calculate the murder rates, you will
see that the murder rate for city A is 208 per 100,000 citizens and that for city B is 80 per
100,000 citizens, which is much lower.
The mayor of Centervale is concerned about the increase in violent crimes being reported to
the police and has commissioned you to study the crime problem, determine whether the
crime rate is worse in Centervale than other states, and create a report.
To prepare for this consulting assignment, you need to learn more about crime rates and
explore crime rates by state using the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI’s) Uniform Crime
Access Table 5 at Crime in the United States.
Select two states to organize and compare to Centervale.
