I performed an analysis of city of Dallas crime data (as of the August, 2020). The goal of this analysis is to identify which areas (by zip code) have the highest amount of crime, and if there are any patterns in the distribution based on crime category.

The resulting data visualization for this analysis may be found on Tableau Public at the following link: What areas of Dallas have the highest amount of crime?
