Perth suburbs sorted by assaults

The following table used Real Estate Institute of Western Australia data on population numbers in suburbs and police crime statistics for Perth suburbs. For each suburb, the assault data covers one year (March 2006 through February 2007). This was divided by the number of residents in each suburb and multiplied by 1000 to get the number of assaults per thousand people.

If you want up-to-date figures for any suburbs of interest, please follow the links and make the calculations yourself. Not hard. But it would be a second heroic effort for me to re-do the whole list!

* You might think that if you live in Northbridge you have a 100% chance of getting assaulted each year. Not really. Most of the trouble comes from outside. Northbridge is full of pubs and thunderous nightlife. Crowds pour in from all over Perth and not everyone gets along sweetly. Punches may follow disagreements about sporting teams, women, cars and who knows what all. But Northbridge residents who stay in their houses and watch TV come to no harm.

Similar comments apply to Burswood. There's a casino there. You should see the size of the parking lot. People arrive from everywhere.
