Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to show how violent crime and social problems have an impact on society. This study particularly concentrates on the five boroughs of New York. The problems associated with the five boroughs of New York are violent crime and social problems. The violent crime for the study involves; felony assaults and robberies. Whereas, the social problems for the study involves; population below the poverty line and male population who are 18-24 years with less than high school graduation. These problems were expressed through the usage of ArcGIS Pro. Using ArcGIS Pro provided an efficient way that displays spatial data. The results from this study show that felony assaults and robberies occurred in the Bronx, Manhattan, Brooklyn and the Queens. Whereas, it was also discovered that the Bronx, Manhattan and Brooklyn experienced social problems related to poverty and education. The spatial coincidence between violent crime and social problems were expressed using overlay analysis. The findings show that the violent crimes and social problems spatially coincide within the Bronx, Manhattan and Brooklyn. This study provides a way in which society can be better managed in dealing with these problems.
