Data Source: Crime data from the Louisville Metro Police Department, processed by the Kentucky State Data Center. Population data used to calculate rate from the U.S. Census Bureau, 2010 Decennial Census, processed by the Kentucky State Data Center.

Footnotes: The numerator for the rate calculation is the average of the 2010, 2011, and 2012 data. "Serious" means the included crimes were classified Part I crimes under the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Uniformed Crime Reporting classification system. Part I crimes as determined by this classification system are homicide, forcible rape, aggravated assault, robbery, arson, burglary, theft and motor vehicle theft. The data sample was limited to the ability to geocode select block-level data, therefore incidences without an address, or without an address that could be geocoded were excluded.
