A team of social justice activists has created an interactive map of police violence by geography over the course of 2014.

Sinyangwe hopes the project will help convince doubtful parties that there is a problem with police brutality in the United States compared with other developed countries—one that disproportionately affects black people.  According to City Lab  (The Atlantic), Sinyangwe and his fellow activists have been compiling information and resources to help support the #blacklivesmatter movement on the ground. In the process, they realized that a comprehensive national snapshot of police violence was missing—guided in part by articles from Reuben Fischer-Baum of FiveThirtyEight, who has argued that official figures on police killings aren’t reliable (Note: The statistician Nate Silver is founder and editor in chief of ESPN’s blog FiveThirtyEight). 

Using non-governmental databases highlighted by Fischer-Baum, includingFatal Encounters and Killed By Police, Sinyangwe and his collaborators estimated that there were 1,175 total police killings in 2014. They then sorted the records by race and found that 302 of the deceased were black—or 26 percent of the total. That’s an overrepresentation of African Americans, who make up 13 percent of the general population.

“In terms of comprehensiveness, our estimate is that [the data] is capturing at least 90 percent of all folks who are killed by police in 2014,” Sinyangwe tells CityLab.

Black people—particularly young, black men—were more likely to be killed by police in certain parts of the country than in others.
