Historical data

Donuka collects, stores, and displays not only current but also historical data collected over the past 10 years or more.

As a result, our users are able to track the history and trends of crimes near or on the land of the real estate properties they’re interested in.

Data sources

Donuka strives to provide credible information obtained from reliable sources. That’s why we only collect and process data from the following sources:

  • police departments
  • city administrations
  • district administrations
  • state administrations
  • federal agencies
  • and others like them…

In all, we collect data on crimes that have been committed from more than 400 different government sources.

Data update frequency

Crime registries are maintained separately by police departments, as well as city, county, state, and federal agencies. These add up to hundreds of different registries and, respectively, hundreds of different data sources, all operating independently of each other.

Each police department and city, county, or state government decides for itself how often to update and publish information. Some make changes and publish updated data several times a day, some daily, some weekly, and some just once a year.

Within 1-2 days of the publication of data in a city, county, or state administration’s database, Donuka updates the data in its own database, and it then becomes available to our users.

Searching for properties and neighborhoods using crime data

Donuka allows you to perform a detailed search for neighborhoods and individual real estate properties using 8+ parameters related to crime data.

In just a minute, you can sift through 100 million+ properties to find only the ones located in the safest (or least safe) neighborhoods or those located on property where crimes were committed.

Here’s an example of a search query using parameters related to crime data:

  • type of crime: robbery
  • date of crime: <10 days
  • casualties present: no
  • address: Brooklyn

In your search results, you will instantly receive a list of real estate properties and/or neighborhoods that match all of the above search parameters. You can also use search parameters for other types of data to get the most accurate results.

Tracking changes in crime

Donuka allows you to create tasks that track changes in existing properties and alert you to new properties that meet the values you specify.

Here’s an example of tracking an existing facility by crime data:

  • new crime: yes

You’ll receive an instant notification by email and on your dashboard if the property you’re tracking has a record of a new crime committed on its perimeter.

Here’s an example of tracking crimes on new properties (or existing properties with characteristics that correspond to your specified values):

  • type of crime: robbery
  • date of crime: <3 days
  • casualties present: no
  • address: Santa Barbara

You’ll receive an instant notification by email and on your dashboard with a list of properties that have new crime records matching your specified values.
