Vital Statistics

Statistics are useful to track issues such as death, primarily related to assault. These charts show that the death rates by assault in Shelby County decreased in three years from 37.4% to 30.3%. Vital statistics are helpful in revealing if certain programs have been effective, such as those designed to cut down on violent crimes.

  • What?
    • Self-Defense , Assertiveness and Awareness
  • When?
    • Tuesday June 19,2012
  • Where?
    • Hickory Hill Health Agency (WIC)??
  • Why?
    • High rates of crime, rape, and murder when compared to the national average.
    • The Total crime risk index is more than twice the national average (Memphis, TN 38115 Demographics Summary, 2010).
    • This high rate alerted us of the need to educate women in the community to protect themselves from dangerous situations and people.
  • How?
    • Provided information about being aware of surroundings and what to do if attacked.
    • Gave them a handout of the information talked about.
    • Taught them two self-defense moves and then let them practice these moves because it is important to let participants in self-defense classes learn, observe, and practice moves (Hollander, 2005).
    • Provided resources on where to find more information online and where to take assertiveness classes.
