Indicators of public safety measure how secure the environment is for citizens to lead their lives. The indicators largely adopt metrics used by law enforcement to track their outcomes. They also contain measures of perceived safety, which might differ from reported police statistics. A particular emphasis of our public safety indicators is youth, schools, and recently detention alternatives.
A full definition of each indicator, as well as its relevance to the two counties, can be found in the More Information section. The data themselves are available in a spreadsheet via the Download Data tab.
