Quarterly fire data

05 January 2015

What is it? Fire data for Quarter 1 and Quarter 2 2014/15 has been uploaded to the Wakefield Observatory. Counts and rates per 10,000 population are available for wards, the seven areas, and the district as a whole.

Example statistic: There were 192 deliberately started secondary fires in Q2 2014/14 across the district as a whole. The numbers of these summer arson incidents vary considerably depending on the prevailing weather. For example, in Q2 2011/12 there were 373 such fires, but in 2012/13 there were just 131. Despite this variability, the long-term trend is downward.
