Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $249,957)

The purpose of this two phase research project is to examine high-risk people, social networks, and places through the development of better data systems and processes applied to both gun homicides and non-fatal shootings in four urban cities. Data will be collected on homicide and non-fatal gun crime using traditional incident case file reviews and systematic incident reviews in Detroit, Indianapolis, Milwaukee and St. Louis. Data from systematic observations from places will also be collected along with social network information from individuals. Analyses will range from basic descriptive patterns, to geospatial analyses, social network analyses, and additional multivariate modeling.ca/ncf
