Mapping and Analysing the UK's Crime Statistics
CrimeRate is a GIS and statistical project dedicated to unlocking the hidden trends and data behind the UK's crime statistics.
We collect open data from the police forces and turn it into useful and informative maps that help residents to gain insights into their local area. We also help data researchers uncover trends and patterns that might otherwise be lost amongst the noise.
The data CrimeRate has analysed covers every year in the last decade, though we typically concentrate on the most recent 5 years due to trend changes. There are also noticeable gaps in the data; for example, Manchester police have stopped opening up data since 2019. We hope this changes soon.
