Prof. Boleslaw K. Szymanski presented an invited talk on "Data Analytics on Impact of Crime on Quality of Life" at the 2019 Center for Crime Evidence-Based Criminal Policy (CEBCP) Seminar at George Mason University, Arlington, VA on June 27, 2019. The talk discussed time and space distribution of crime activities in Chicago. The study used 2002-2017 crime data in 77 Chicago districts, crime classification using the Illinois Uniform Crime Reporting (IUCR) code, and demographic data for the same period. Then, we discuss monthly and yearly crime number prediction for each district using the linear regression. We also discuss intervention evaluation using the developed prediction model. Each intervention provides additional law enforcement resources to a certain district and the question that we are trying to answer in which is the best to receive these resources to achieve the largest crime reduction in the city.
