5) Crime in the United States in 2016: A Preliminary Analysis
The murder rate is projected to rise by 13.1 percent this year, with nearly half of this increase attributable to Chicago alone (234 of 496 murders). Other cities that drove the national murder increase in 2015 are projected to see significant decreases in 2016. The causes are still unclear, but some theories include higher concentrations of poverty, increased gang activity, and fewer police officers. https://www.brennancenter.org/publication/crime-2016-preliminary-analysis
