Data Haven Since 2005, 85 percent of New Haven homicides have occurred in just one-third of all city neighborhoods.

And “neighborhoods that saw two or more homicides from 2005 to 2011 ... are almost entirely African-American and Latino.”

That’s the word from the not-for-profit numbers-crunching outfit called Data Haven. It has produced a report and map matching homicides over six years with U.S. Census data.

In most of New Haven, according to the findings, the murder rate is no higher than it is elsewhere in Connecticut. But in those hardest-hit neighborhoods, it’s ten times higher.
