Style‘s 2016 Crime Almanac is out and offers a lot of info to dig into.

Comparing the total number of incidents from last year to this year, crime is down in every neighborhood between Brauers and Church Hill proper: Brauers, Mosby, Fairmount, Union Hill, Church Hill North, Oakwood, Chimborazo, and Church Hill all saw crime drop last year. While the number of reported incidents fell a whopping 40% in Woodville, the numbers jumped 18% in Creighton, 20% in Eastview, and 20% in Fairfield. The incident count was down slightly for Greater Fulton, and up 7.5% for Shockoe Bottom.

A fun stat from the report is “incidents per 100 residents”, a number that we can use to loosely compare different neighborhoods. The Fan, for example, saw 6.3 incidents per 100 residents last year, Jackson Ward had 21.7, while the East End stacked up like this:

  • Church Hill 4.5
  • Chimborazo 5
  • Fulton 6.6
  • Brauers 6.6
  • Woodville 8.9
  • Union Hill 9.1
  • Peter Paul 9.6
  • Church Hill North 10.6
  • Fairfield 11.4
  • Creighton 11.5
  • Mosby 11.6
  • Eastview 13
  • Fairmount 14.5
  • Oakwood 15.9
