About this Project

Chicago, one of the most violent cities in the US, registered during 2015 more shootings than New York City and Los Angeles combined. What are the determinant factors in this concentration of violence?

Taking this as the starting point, a website has been build to explore gun violence in Chicago, mapping out local characteristics with actual gun incidents. Measures such as poor mental health, or education or wealth deprivation, can explain the conditions in which gun incidents are most likely to occur

Analysis types:

  • Histogram
  • Simpler linear regression
  • Cluster Analysis (k-means)
