The Truth on Crime

2016 was full of false news reports, stretched facts, and attention-seeking rhetoric. The Marshall Project sought to address theseĀ false claims by combing through 40 years of FBI data in order to set the facts straight.

Their findings? Wide variation in crime rates from community to community and supporting evidence that all crime is truly local.

Check out their findings presented in graphical form to see how changing the city, type of crime, or span of time studied can all affect how crime is changing.

It’s all about perspective.
