Customize the data
After selecting the “Homicide Trends” or “Locations of Homicides” view, use the dropdown boxes on the left of the dashboard to filter by time of incident, demographics of the victim and location of the incident. You can also filter by clicking on a chart within the dashboard; for example, clicking on “2018” in the “Number of Homicides Per Year” chart will filter the page to show only data for the year you have selected. Holding the control key allows you to choose more than one selection in a chart. Hover over data points for more detail.
