While the above statistics are helpful in some circumstances, they do not give you information about how North Lauderdale compares to the rest of Florida or to the nation in terms of likelihood that you will be the victim of a crime. To make those comparisons, you need to look at the crime rate. The crime rate refers to the number of crimes per a set number of people. In our crime rates, we have chosen to report the crime rate as incidents per 1,000 people. By comparing these rates, you can determine whether a person in North Lauderdale is at a higher or lower risk of being a victim of a major crime than people in the rest of Florida or nationwide.
