Streetlight vs Nighttime Crime?

Is there any correlation between nighttime streetlight illumination and crime rate? Well, according to data, not really.

We quickly mapped the streetlight location data and nighttime crime spots and tried to see if there's distinct relationship. Turned out there's no significant relationship between the two. Perhaps there are other more critical factors lead to crime rate, such as district zoning, security, demographic, accessibility, and so on.
