  1. Hi, crime statistics cam best be produced by normalizing the data and report the figure e.g per 1,000 inhabitants.
    For example:
    St Michael: 10,000 inhabitants, 14 murders comes out to 1.4 per 1,000 inhabitants
    St Philip: 4,500 inhabitants, 7 murders comes out to 1.6 per 1,000 inhabitants
    Christ Church:8,000 inhabitants, 5 murders comes out to 0.6 per 1,000 inhabitants
    In absolute figures St M is the highest, but per 1,000 inhabitants St Philips is worse (1.6 vs 1.4).
