Each month the Secretariado Ejecutivo del Sistema Nacional de Seguridad Pública publishes crime information on its website. The crimenmexico website downloads, processes the data, and presents it in an easy to interpret format. Even better, there’s also a Spanich version at http://crimenmexico.diegovalle.net/es/ Besides the really cool interactive hexbin map on the homepage you can:
View a time series of crimes by state
View an interactive map that lets you filter by homicide rate
View a time series of crimes in the most important municipios of Mexico
Detect municipios with an unusual number of crimes
I plan to update the data each month, hopefully the SNSP won’t change the download format anymore.
