sources/selected-crimes-local-authorities-2012-2015-*

Collection of data about Israeli Police events by local authorities and collection of selected crimes.

Data source: https://www.odata.org.il/dataset/maazarim1

Contains data for years 2012-2015.

Overview

Contains 4 XLS (see in sources directory), files are identified by their suffix:

  • 1b-small
  • 2a-large
  • 2a-small
  • 2b-large

Some of these files have multiple sheets.

Not all sheets are processed, see the commented-out sheets in plus_plus.source-spec.yaml

The final data is normalized to a single table with resource column identifying the source XLS file / sheet number.

As of time of writing, these are the XLS files and sheets available:

So really we are left with only 1 sheet which is worth investigating further:

resource: 2a-large-sheet-2

Offences are grouped by major stat_group and specific offences:

Place names and more specific region codes are available:

Each value is per year quarter:

Import into your tool

If you are using R here's how to get the data you want quickly loaded:

install.packages("jsonlite")
library("jsonlite")

json_file <- "http://datahub.io/OriHoch/israel_selected_crimes_2012_2015/datapackage.json"
json_data <- fromJSON(paste(readLines(json_file), collapse=""))

# access csv file by the index starting from 1
path_to_file = json_data$resources[[1]]$path
data <- read.csv(url(path_to_file))
print(data)

In order to work with Data Packages in Pandas you need to install the Frictionless Data data package library and the pandas extension:

pip install datapackage
pip install jsontableschema-pandas

To get the data run following code:

import datapackage

data_url = "http://datahub.io/OriHoch/israel_selected_crimes_2012_2015/datapackage.json"

# to load Data Package into storage
storage = datapackage.push_datapackage(data_url, 'pandas')

# data frames available (corresponding to data files in original dataset)
storage.buckets

# you can access datasets inside storage, e.g. the first one:
storage[storage.buckets[0]]

For Python, first install the `datapackage` library (all the datasets on DataHub are Data Packages):

pip install datapackage

To get Data Package into your Python environment, run following code:

from datapackage import Package

package = Package('http://datahub.io/OriHoch/israel_selected_crimes_2012_2015/datapackage.json')

# get list of resources:
resources = package.descriptor['resources']
resourceList = [resources[x]['name'] for x in range(0, len(resources))]
print(resourceList)

data = package.resources[0].read()
print(data)

If you are using JavaScript, please, follow instructions below:

Install data.js module using npm:

  $ npm install data.js

Once the package is installed, use the following code snippet:

const {Dataset} = require('data.js')

const path = 'http://datahub.io/OriHoch/israel_selected_crimes_2012_2015/datapackage.json'

// We're using self-invoking function here as we want to use async-await syntax:
(async () => {
  const dataset = await Dataset.load(path)

  // Get the first data file in this dataset
  const file = dataset.resources[0]
  // Get a raw stream
  const stream = await file.stream()
  // entire file as a buffer (be careful with large files!)
  const buffer = await file.buffer
})()

Install the datapackage library created specially for Ruby language using gem:

gem install datapackage

Now get the dataset and read the data:

require 'datapackage'

path = 'http://datahub.io/OriHoch/israel_selected_crimes_2012_2015/datapackage.json'

package = DataPackage::Package.new(path)
# So package variable contains metadata. You can see it:
puts package

# Read data itself:
resource = package.resources[0]
data = resource.read
puts data
Datapackage.json
