Baltimore daily shootings analysis

Baltimore Sun analysis

By Christine Zhang

The Baltimore Sun conducted an analysis of Baltimore Police Department Part 1 Victim Based Crime Data posted on Open Baltimore on Feb. 22, 2019. The report covers incidents between Jan. 1, 2012, and Feb. 16, 2019.

The analysis provided information for the Feb. 22, 2019 Baltimore Sun story titled "Thursday's violence in Baltimore was extreme — but the number of shootings isn't unprecedented".

The Sun's findings and analysis are available in the "analysis" notebook in this repository, shootings_analysis.ipynb.
