I’ve had this bookmarked for a while, but haven’t gotten around to mentioning it. Citizen Vancouver has some cool heat maps of auto theft and burglary in Vancouver:
Ironically, the two maps, if overlayed, donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t match up. Could it be that car theft occurs where the well-to-doÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ers live, while the residential B&EÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s are in the Ã¢â‚¬Ëœhoods where elderly middle income residents reside (with kerrisdale as the exception – theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re just rich old folk that live there)? And can we superimpose the skytrain and transit routes and create another correlation (Joyce station, Broadway station)?
Hang on, I can do that (click for a slightly larger version):
I just eyeballed the SkyTrain line, but that gives a general sense of where the most common crimes occur in Vancouver. Looks like south Cambie and Kerrisdale are the safest places to live.
