someone need to brake the crime rate up into boroughs as if the boroughs were cities and lets see teh stats..i dono
I actually agree with you, it would cut out a lot of confusion.
Major American cities should do that across the board.
Instead of rating the entire city, do it by sections. Do it by neighborhoods....
If you do that, you're splitting hairs. The sole purpose is to give the public a general idea. I'd be willing to bet all those stats are on record you just have to find them yourself. Back in Edmonton we had crime stats broken down to each individual neighborhood, we're talking sub-sections of areas no more then 5 city blocks big. So precise that you could find out how many types of Honda Civics from 1994 were stolen in Richfield in 2002 between the months of January and April. It's all there if you want to look it up, it's just of no use to make all those records published in the local news because it's overkill.
