Hot Dots and Hot Lines: Analysis of 80,000 Crime Incidents in London Underground

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This research presents an exploratory analysis of three years of crime incidents in London Underground (n=79,873). Along with basic descriptive statistics of official crime reports, three converging analyses are presented: first, temporal analysis of ‘hot times’ of crime occurring across the London Underground, on both trains and in stations. Data suggest non-random patterns of crime, concentrating particularly during rush hours (5-7PM) and especially on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Second, from spatial analysis of the data we show existence of geographic hot spots: highly-skewed concentrations of crime at specific areas in ‘hot stations’, especially on platforms and at stations’ entrance points. Data show that usually around 5% of station platforms produce over 50% of crime. Third, compared to street-level crime - in terms of both raw figures and crime rates per capita - the London Tube system is a relatively safe place, with petty theft accounting for nearly half of all incidents.
