City of Rochester, New York (2014 - 2016)

Based on data from the Rochester Police Department, the map below shows large disparities in the prevalence of violent crime at a census tract level. The annual rate of violent crime in the Focus Area* tracts (923 per 100K population) is nearly triple the rate in the other parts of the city (325).

The Focus Area consists of eight high-poverty ZIP codes in the city of Rochester with particularly high concentration of African-Americans and Latinos. See a map of the Focus Area here.
