American Violence is a website from Princeton Sociology Professor Patrick Sharkey, formerly Chair of Sociology at New York University and Scientific Director at Crime Lab New York. With funding support from the Gates Foundation, the site provides up-to-date city-level figures on murder rates in more than 80 of the largest 100 U.S. cities and features neighborhood-level figures on violent crime in 30–50 cities with available data. Sharkey launched this site with research support from NYU’s Department of Sociology and Center for Data Science. The Marron Institute provided administrative support for this project.
