Choosing my dataset

The dataset that I have chosen to use for my assessment project is on knife crime statistics in London in the year 2018.

I chose these statistics as my dataset as not only will I look at just the year 2018 I will look at the last few years and also I will look at figures recorded of knife crime this year. This topic interests me as there has been a lot in the news about knife crime as it rapidly increased last year.

In the dataset I can find many angles some ways can be to show that knife crime is on the rise, not all knife crime may be recorded, crime is increasing and what could be the reason towards this and I can also differentiate crime rates and maybe uncover what type of crime is the highest in London.
