Every crime map on NeighborhoodScout shows the relative differences within a geographic area for crime risk – either within that state, or within that city. Dark blue colors indicate high crime risk relative to that city, while the lighter blue colors indicate low crime risk relative to that city.
*Because the maps are designed to illustrate the variation within the city or the state, the colors are not comparable between maps.*
To see the actual, absolute crime risks for a neighborhood, you must click on the map to open the neighborhood reports, where we reveal the detailed crime data (neighborhood crime data is reserved for subscribers).
