Actually, you have it

Actually, you have it backwards. Because of the smaller populations in the other areas, a few additional crimes there would have a much larger impact on their crime rate. For a city with a larger population, increases in the crime rate require more incidents to have an impact on the rates. Besides, the article notes that it's based on January (the same time period for all areas), and that if you add in February, the crime rate numbers will look even worse. Then you're up to 1/6 of the year with a dramatic increase in crime rates. At what point would you wait before becoming concerned about the trend towards MUCH higher crime rates than any of the neighboring areas, including areas that are poorer than Rosemead.
