Notes

Abstract: This presentation discusses a research study on the spatial analysis of random gunfire in Dallas, Texas. The objectives of this research were to determine the difference between incidents of random gunfire (RGF) and reports of RGF, the demographic profile of the RGF incident locations, and the neighborhoods where clusters of RGF occur. The conclusions found: (1) RGF can be isolated into specific incidents using a GIS with a time/space threshold, (2) RGF is correlated with levels of education, median household income, levels of owner-occupied housing and total population, and (3) RGF is significantly clustered in neighborhoods with specific demographic profiles.
