How those maps were created
Colour coding based on total score = safety score * 0.5 + income score * 0.5
Score is exponentially transformed between 0 - 100 based on ranking among all England neighbourhoods. 100 means the best performing neighbourhood in England.
Data Granularity: LSOA level
Raw Data Sources:
Crime Data (Dec'17 - Nov'18): https://data.police.uk/data/
Income Data (2015): https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/english-indices-of-deprivation-2015
Methodology note is to be developed. We adapted the approach similar to IMD2015, https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/english-indices-of-deprivation-2015-technical-report
For example, Safety Score was developed following the steps below:
Map all reported crime case between Dec'17 - Nov'18 into LSOA based on their lat/lng;
Categorise crime in each LSOA into Violent Crime, Criminal Damage, Property Damage, Other Crime four subdomains and obtain count under each subdomain;
Calculate count/population for each subdomain for each LSOA;Rank each LSOA in each subdomain;
Obtain normal distributed transformed score for each LSOA at subdomain level;
Summing up all subdomain scores for each LSOA;Rank LSOAs based on the summed up scores;
Exponentially transformed crime scores based on ranking
