(p.3) Chapter 1 The Crime Decline: Some Vital Statistics
The City that Became Safe

Franklin E. Zimring

Oxford University Press

This chapter provides a statistical profile of the substantial crime decline that started in New York City in the early 1990s which has continued well past the turn of a new century. The first section of the analysis concentrates on three important features of the official statistical portrait of declining crime in the largest city in the United States—the magnitude of declining crime rates, the breadth of the drop, and the length of the decline. Each of these determinations sets New York apart from other big cities in the United States and elsewhere.

Keywords:   New York City, crime rates, statistical profile, crime drop
