While doing some research on houses in Wallingford, CT I came across this website. It’s a really fun tool that compares violent crimes, race, age, size, income, property theft, etc. etc. for towns in the United States.
For fun, let’s compare our living location’s violent crime rates!
Click on the link above and find your state on the right sidebar. Then, scroll down and find your town.
Some of the smaller towns may not have violent crime rates listed.
In 2005, per 100,000 people, there were 314* violent crimes. that’s 0.314%.
In 2005, per 100,000 people there were 78** violent crimes. that’s 0.078%
Last night I made a bid on a house. It’s not the best house in the world, it needs a new roof and has some asbestos shingles which freak me out a bit. I think my bid may have been a bit high for what the house is worth considering it needs some repairs, but it has some financial potential if I could fix up the third floor and keep the place solid. I hope it works out.
*pi times 10^2 coincidence? or sinister mathematical criminals?
**pi/4 times 10^2… I think I’m onto something
