Title: Urban Analytics: Methodology and Results on Demographics in Philadelphia
Author(s): Colman Humphrey* and Rachel Thurston and Shane Jensen
Companies: The Wharton School and Stantec Architecture and The Wharton School
Keywords: Philadelphia ; Demographics ; Urban ; Analytics ; Crime

We analyse Philadelphia at various fine spatial levels: we use income and poverty data at the blockgroup level, population counts from census data at the block level, landuse data at the level of individual lots, and crime data at exact coordinate locations. We explore associations between landuse, demographics and crime, and use our data to analyse population movement from 2000 to 2010.
