Major metropolitan areas can be similar in population and not much else. In this paper we explore Denver, Colorado and our nation’s capital, Washington DC. These two areas are only separated in population by 6,000 people but the rates of crime vary greatly as of the 2010 Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) system administered by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The UCR will show which of these two areas reported more incidents of violent crime, as well as the broken down violent crime rates such as murder and non-negligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery and aggravated assault.
