UChicago Urban Labs

  • Urban Labs is packed with information on a lot of these questions. Particularly in the “crime lab” and “poverty lab” sections. They also have several models they have tried out with community support and the data from those projects. 

Note: Use caution against leaning too hard on the Crime Lab, which has some useful research but works directly with CPD and has long been criticized for treating crime as an individual problem of Black people and actively dismissing structural problems.
