If you look at the citywide total for 2017, we are on track to practically duplicate the total incidents of robbery for 2016.
A closer look at the district level reveals similar patterns of robbery in the Bucktown neighborhood and surrounding areas. The 14th District hasn't seen this many robberies since 2010 and the 18th district since 2008.
Likewise, residents just south of us in the 12th District will probably see more robberies by the end of 2017 than the previous 10 years, surpassing even their highest number of 2008.
Lastly, when you compare 2017 with the relatively quiet year of 2015, the district of the entire city which has the greatest increase in robberies is the 14th District. That's a projected 74% increase in robberies over 2015, just barely beating the 1st District.
Overall, the city will likely see a 24% increase (or more) in robberies in 2017 vs 2015.
(Jan 1, 2006 to Sept 27, 2017 is actual data provided by City of Chicago.
Total for 2017 is a forecast using data from same time period of previous year Sept 28 to Dec 31. The final 2017 total will likely be higher.)
