Summary This investigation used FBI Uniform Crime Report data to show that most of the crime in Tucson occurs in the North side of the city. The violence -- which can be explained by a combination of poverty, prostitution, drug dealing and strip clubs -- is so bad that many people choose to move away rather than work to change the situation. The findings contradict the perception that the predominately Hispanic South side of Tucson, where gang violence is prevalent, is the most dangerous area of the city.
