Also, good to note that the data set for "Crime Data" does not make it clear if it's representing arrests for those crimes or if it is showing convictions for them. It does say "The crime data is preliminary and subject to change as a result of investigative follow up and may not match earlier published statistics." which leads me to believe that it's just arrest.

Lest we forget the "innocent until proven guilty" nature of the law, this data shows what police are arresting for, not what has happened.

Would you have any interest in doing this nationally? Off the top of my head I would look at the dept of labor, I would also look at data sets from the federal reserve.

Thanks for the examples, Nathan. Looks great. My goal with this data will be to roll it into a larger socioeconomic index, that includes things like youth unemployment, poverty, social vulnerability, transience, etc to look for places where the city should prioritize investment and attention. 

If you have any ideas for great data sets beyond the Census, do share :) 

Glad to have found this group. Looking forward to a meetup soon. -s

Sanjay,

For reference you can look at the work we at PediaCities did with T. Levin's scrapped point level crime data. The GitHub that Noel mentioned has more data, but you can find a CSV for 2013 point level data on PediaCities here: http://nycdata.pediacities.com/dataset/nyc-crime-data.

Point data visualized for a neighborhood in the Bronx: http://nyc.pediacities.com/Resource/CommunityStats/Mott_Haven?tab=4

Blog post about our process and methodology: http://www.pediacities.com/2014/02/nyc-crime-map/

There's a lot more that could be done with this data, so I'm interested to see what you come up with!
