Although most law enforcement agencies report their crime incidences to the FBI, not all do. This creates holes in the data. NeighborhoodScout’s crime methodology allows us to accurately fill in the holes based on the crime experience of localities of similar size and composition. We know these crime rate predictions to be over 97% accurate, thanks to over a decade of predictive modeling techniques and historic back-casting. This allows NeighborhoodScout to provide the most accurate crime data and crime rate predictions for anywhere in the U.S., regardless of non-reporting or reporting errors owned by the source law enforcement agencies.
