Crime Statistics for Richmond – Developed by Neighborhood Scout
The crime rates we have developed are based on data and crime statistics from the FBI and the U.S. Justice Department. We gather data from all 17,000 local law enforcement agencies in the United States, and use a relational database to associate crime incidences from all of these law enforcement agencies to the specific local communities the agency covers, and hence in which community the crimes have occurred. We then researched and developed mathematical algorithms to statistically estimate the incidences of both violent and property crimes for each neighborhood in America. This project took nearly 6-months to complete. The resultant formulae produce numbers of crimes and crime rates for neighborhoods with upwards of 87% accuracy in most cases. We use a total of twenty different formulas to increase the accuracy of our estimates, and apply them based on city or town characteristics, to produce the best model fit in each case.
