Analyzing Crime Rates in Kansas, USA Using Machine Learning

Local Chapter Kansas, USA Chapter

Coordinated byUnited Kingdom ,

Status: Ongoing

Project background.

The project aims to analyze crime rates in the state of Kansas, with the goal of identifying the most common crime areas in the state. The analysis will help people to avoid living in those areas, and the state can reinforce laws to tackle the problems. Kansas has a population of approximately 2.9 million people and is known for its agriculture, aviation, and energy production. However, like any other state, Kansas has its share of crime problems, which include property crimes such as theft, burglary, and motor vehicle theft, and domestic crimes too.

The problem.

The project will use publicly available data from various sources such as the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and other sources to analyze crime trends in the state. The analysis will include factors such as location, time, and type of crime to identify hotspots and patterns of criminal activity. The project will also examine the effectiveness of existing laws and enforcement strategies in tackling crime in the state. The insights gained from this analysis will be used to develop recommendations to improve crime prevention and law enforcement efforts in Kansas. Ultimately, the goal of the project is to help reduce crime rates in the state and improve the safety and well-being of its residents.
