According to Google’s approximation of the city populations :
2012 Chicago Crime Data From :
“Data is extracted from the Chicago Police Department’s CLEAR (Citizen Law Enforcement Analysis and Reporting) system.”
2012 Los Angeles Crime Data :
Los Angeles Count Sherrif’s Department
Now I have two sets of data. I have a (Primary Crime Type or Category of Crime) and Frequency;
for both Chicago and Los Angeles.
CPD labels their crimes differently from the LAPD.
Here is how I will be correlating some of the crimes between the two cities. Comparing the Chicago classifications to Los Angeles.
Next I will manicure my data into a Google Column Chart acceptable JSON object.
LAPD and LASD are different entities, in charge of different areas.
I did not know this. I thought LASD was for Los Angeles wide crime statistics.
