6.  Jay County Archival Indicators of Risk

6.12 Crime Indices

The following table shows the Crime Indices for specific property and personal crimes.  The method is to compare the risk in a given location to the general crime risk for the nation as a whole.  We see that in the context of the U.S., Indiana is generally safer than other places for risk of robbery, but is more dangerous for risk of murder.    See the Appendix Glossary for definitions of these crimes.  This table shows indices for Jay County, compared to Indiana and the nation (which is the point of comparison).
