Spatial Analysis of Crime in the Evaluation of Public Housing Redevelopment
Abstract | Pp. 69–85 |

While previous research has provided law enforcement agencies with trend analysis based on geostatistical models, incident data mapping can also estimate citizen experience of crime. We present a methodology for estimating experience of "signal crimes" based on incident report data. We apply this method to a HOPE VI project in Durham, NC by analyzing crime at public housing complexes to which residences were relocated between 2002 and 2004. Declines in experienced density of shooting from Few Gardens occurred with some increases in experienced murder density. Results indicate that relocated residents experienced improvements in crime levels but serious problems persist.
