Summary/Abstract: Principal Component Analysis, Cluster Analysis and Regression Analysis were combined in testing the US crime dataset. The purpose is to elucidate a dependency between crime rate in several US states and socio-economic conditions. The main objective in Cluster Analysis is to discover natural groupings of the variables such that the degree of association between two variables is maximal when they belong to the same group. Cluster analysis grouped data in two clusters. Both methods suggest that there is a relation between high criminality, families with a low income, the environment with high crime rate, a large number of nonwhites and large population.
