Obviously the module is about gathering the information which is facts and figures, to do that we need statistics of Rome. When initially starting this, it became aggravating seeing so much information on Italy but not rome itself never the less this is the information I have found.
To start of with research; here is an excerpt from an articles showing the state of crime in Rome in 2014. IN our city we could try and tackle crime and punishment since it was increasing and is likely continued through to 2016.
“The Rome RSO Office has been informed through its official contacts that crime has increased significantly over the past year. In an attempt to combat this dramatic rise in crime, the Questora (Roman Police Force) added 200 additional officers. There had been indicators observed that suggested that crime totals grew recently. These included: the number of protests directed toward the government’s economic ministries, frequent union strikes, and daily voiced concerns over Italy’s financial solvency in local media.” – “Italy 2014 Crime And Safety Report: Rome”. OSAC. N.p., 2014. Web. 3 Feb. 2016.
Here is a website that goes through average spending costs in Rome. This could be really helpful to understand Rome’s economy. However this information is from 2014 so obviously it’s not up to date and accurate.
In another website I found some demographics for Italy which are also from 2014. These could prove to be helpful down the line and will likely come back to. However they aren’t specific to Rome which gives the information at a disadvantage.
I feel bad that I couldn’t find anymore on Rome that was as detailed but hopefully throughout the project I will be to gather more information on Rome for more accuracy.
