Year 2005 to 2010 – Reported Crimes against monthly Mean Income and Expenditure

Monthly Mean Income and Expenditure data from: http://www.statistics.gov.lk/HIES/HIES2009_10FinalReport.pdf

There seems to be no correlation here. Maybe because the mean income/expenditure is a poor representation to compare agains crime rates. Poverty indicators might be better here.

All Crimes by Location – 2011 Q1 Statistics (1st Jan 2011 – 31 March 2011)

Please note the following for all the graphs found in this blog:

*NCPA = National Childrens Protection Association

*CID = Central Investigation Department, Sri Lanka Police

Thus, certain locations are actually organisations to which the crimes were reported.

I cannot vouch for the accuracy of these stats or comment on how complete they are. All graphs were compiled using reports found here: http://www.police.lk/index.php/crime-trends. You can click on an image to see the graph in its entirety.

The original data can be found here.

I have reproduced these files here:
