My data includes the crime rates compared to the income rates from the four major and most populated cities in Texas; Houston, San Antonio, Dallas and Austin. My first data visualization will be a chart displaying the population in the four cities which will give us an idea of the numbers we will be working with based on people.
I will then include a data visualization of the crime rates in these four major cities. These crimes include:
- Property Damage crimes
- Burglary, Larceny-theft, motor vehicle-theft and arson
- Violent crimes
- murder and non-negligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery and aggravated assault
This will help us understand the types of crimes happening in each city as well as the amount of crimes in each category.
I will also include four data visualizations based on the income rates of each city. My biggest question: do income rates affect the crimes happening in each city? These four charts will be able to give an idea of the income rates in the cities, and will hopefully be able to come up with a conclusion on if there is a correlation between crime rates and income rates from each city.
