I have used the same methodology as in the last post to create a classification for London shown above but without dividing numbers by police officers and staff numbers. I have excluded three Wards, Heathrow Villages, St James and West End for two reasons.
- St James and West End Wards are not shown in the published tables, they are split into eight sub-wards with no information about their locations.
- Heathrow Village is Heathrow Airport that clustered uniquely unsurprisingly, St James and West End always cluster together with a far higher crime rate than any other wards. Removing these gives a better scale to the other Wards.
Back to the map. In broad terms it shows what I expected. There are a couple of surprises,
- the location of the boroughs showing robbery problems, though having checked these do include personal and business robberies; my previous analysis has been exclusively on personal robbery.
- the variation in vehicle crime numbers.
