Summary of "Urban crime prediction based on spatio-temporal Bayesian model."

Spatio-temporal Bayesian modeling, a method based on regional statistics, is widely used in epidemiological studies. Using Bayesian theory, this study builds a spatio-temporal Bayesian model specific to urban crime to analyze its spatio-temporal patterns and determine any developing trends. The associated covariates and their changes are also analyzed. The model is then used to analyze data regarding burglaries that occurred in Wuhan City in China from January to August 2013. Of the diverse socio-economic variables associated with crime rate, including population, the number of local internet bars, hotels, shopping centers, unemployment rate, and residential zones, this study finds that the burglary crime rate is significantly correlated with the average resident population per community and number of local internet bars. This finding provides a scientific reference for urban safety protection.
