About Our Data

At Crime Axis, our commitment to providing accurate and reliable crime statistics begins with the sources of our data. We draw our information from the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS), a comprehensive and nationwide database that offers a granular view of reported crimes across the United States.

The NIBRS Advantage

NIBRS stands as the gold standard in crime data collection and reporting. It offers a level of detail that surpasses traditional summary-based reporting systems. Instead of grouping multiple offenses together, NIBRS records each reported incident separately, allowing for a more precise and comprehensive understanding of the various crimes that occur in our communities.

Data Transformation and Cleaning

Our journey to present this data to you in a user-friendly format involves meticulous data transformation and cleaning. Over the past six months, our dedicated team has worked tirelessly to refine and standardize the raw data from NIBRS. We’ve combed through thousands of cells and rows, ensuring accuracy and consistency in every data point.

Bringing You Reliable Insights

Our commitment to accuracy is unwavering. By drawing from NIBRS and applying rigorous data cleaning processes, we ensure that the information you find on Crime Axis is not just data; it’s a reliable source of insights for your safety and decision-making.
