Skill Drill: Creating a Subset of the Data Based on Crime Category
While it may be useful to map overall crime across Los Angeles County, the dataset can also provide answers to questions about specific types of crimes. In this instance, you will create a density surface model based on incidents of drunk driving.
In this dataset, incidents related to drunk driving have the following STAT codes and descriptions:
241 – DRUNK DRIVING – VEHICLE/BOAT: Alcohol/Drugs (Injury/Death), Felony
242 – DRUNK DRIVING – VEHICLE/BOAT: Alc/Drugs
243 – DRUNK DRIVING – VEHICLE/BOAT: Alcohol at .08% Or Above
245 – DRUNK DRIVING – VEHICLE/BOAT: Drugs Only
Use an attribute selection to select the records for each incident type. Create a layer based on the selected records.
