Oakland Stressors - 2011 Update
Released: February 16, 2012
The City of Oakland and Urban Strategies Council have developed a new Stressor model for the city using the latest available neighborhood data.
This model provides a rank for every Community Police Beat in Oakland that indicates the relatively high or low levels of 'stress' on a neighborhood. The new model has been adjusted to account for newly available data and also certain data such as poverty that are no longer available from the Census Bureau. The indicators of stress include arrests, crime reports, food stamp recipients, youth incarceration and probation, violent suspensions and chronic absence for OUSD students.
Each Community Police Beat is ranked from 1 through to 57 with 1 indicating the most stressed beat in the city. Beat 34X is the highest ranked beat in 2011.
