combining geolocation, mobile technology and the daily mail mindset all in one

1 fairly obvious design flaw :
if your iphone reckons hackney is 37.6% antisocial then the chances are you'll not have your iphone much longer...

Can you actually find out, or do you need to buy the app (er, and an iPhone)?

the % figure is completely pointless- based on people's perception of crime, rather than cross referencing between the data available.

Geographical area also too large to be meaningful. Just a shit version of the ONS website.

Need to look at the questions the PBS ASB Perceptions survey asks,sample size etc. How the fuck do they end up with a per centage figure by area?

Feels like a Daily Mail dream app at present.

Could form the basis of a pretty good game of top trumps tho
