Indian state crime plot

Here's an attempt to plot crime in Indian states. The data was obtained from Systemic Peace Organization. Next I plan to overlay crime data on the state population.   


As population differs significantly in Indian states, here are the crimes/person to determine the safest and the most dangerous states.
  • Daman & Diu has the highest crime rate per person. This territory has liquor license whereas the state close to it, Gujarat doesn't. Could that be a contributing factor?
  • Bihar, Assam, Jharkhand and Rajasthan don't surprise as the most dangerous states but its interesting to see Kerela with high crime rate per person given its 100% literacy rate
  • The safe places to live include Nagaland, Delhi, Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh.
