About this project
The Washington Post compiled up to a decade of homicide arrest data from 50 of America’s largest cities. The Post mapped and analyzed the data to identify the homicides that most often led to an arrest and those that did not. Homicide arrest rates were calculated by victim’s race, age, gender and location. The Post’s data is being released publicly and will be expanded over 2018. Visit wapo.st/homicidedatabase to see the data.
