Text Version

The map shows the rate of violent offences in Saskatoon neighbourhoods in 2003. Neighbourhoods with the lowest rate of violent offences (0 to 5.0) are represented by a light green, those with low rates of violent offences (5.1 to 13.0) are represented by a slightly darker green, neighbourhoods with moderate rates of violent offences (13.10 to 30.0) are represented by a darker green, neighbourhoods with high rates of violent offences (30.1 to 60.0) are represented by a dark green and neighbourhoods with the highest rates of violent offences (60.1 to 150.0) are represented by the darkest green.

The map demonstrates that the areas with high and highest rates of violent offences are seen in neighbourhoods in the Western part of the city, with many clustered in and around Saskatoon’s inner city. The majority of the neighbourhoods are characterized by low rates of violent offences and many of these are seen in the outer parts of the city.
