2023 US Crime Risk Database: Updated Census Data Provides for a More Precise Analysis

With updated census and police data comes a new and enhanced crime risk model. For the 2023 update, our data experts had over 20,000 additional block groups to analyze. These updated block groups provided for a “recalibrated” analysis of the social disorganization within those areas, and therefore, a more consistent crime risk analysis. CAP Index’s ongoing commitment to provide customers with the latest, most current information drives our continuous efforts to refine and improve our models. By incorporating the most recent data into the 2023 US crime risk database, we ensure that our clients receive the most accurate and actionable insights possible. This commitment not only enhances the reliability of our crime risk assessments but also empowers businesses, law enforcement agencies, and community planners to make informed decisions based on the most up-to-date information available. Our dedication to innovation and accuracy underscores our role as a leader in crime risk analysis, and we remain steadfast in our mission to deliver superior, data-driven solutions to our valued customers.


Building the 2023 US Crime Risk Database:

We analyzed over 200 million data points involving demographic, crime, and business count variables.
Over 68% of the nearly 5 million businesses we analyzed experienced a change in their CAP Index Risk Category.

CAP Reports are critical to my risk assessments. They have enabled us to take a more surgical approach to investing in our stores that need it the most.

CAP Index is the first tool I turn to when time is of the essence. I can always depend on CAP Index to provide me qualified crime information within a very few minutes that I feel comfortable reviewing with the C-Suite.

Our property selectors are not discouraged from a site just because it receives a high score. What we do is issue every store – all of them – a security classification. The classification determines how we allocate our security resources to that store.

Claude Verville,

CAP Index's online platform, CRIMECAST, is great. It is easy to use and quick!

Ken Wieczorek,

In industries where there is high public contact and a customer is coming to our location (such as retail), why would you leave it to chance when planning security when there is an easy, affordable tool? When investing a million dollars on a location, what is this small charge compared to what it may cost you when you get sued?

Jay Beighley,
Nationwide Insurance

CAP Index assessments are a must for anyone engaged in asset protection. The new website is much improved and as important, easy to navigate.

Bruce List,
The Williams Companies

We have been using CAP Index for a few years and include it in our security vulnerability assessments. Highly recommend it.
