The project aims to develop of a Social Data Analysis Framework, notably mobilizing criminal records and applying descriptive computational techniques, such as: associative algorithms, extraction of decision tree rules, among others. The methods and instruments presented in the work will provide the discovery of patterns, enabling a guided way to identify similarities between recurrent situations in the social sphere, with descriptive techniques and data visualization. The study area was defined as the São Paulo city and the structuring of social data as a central idea, with special attention to the information quality. In light of this, a set of technological tools will be validated through such as a database, Python, ML libraries and tools for results visualization. Among the main deliveries related to technological products and the development of articles with discoveries made in the research stage. The effectiveness and usefulness of the results will depend on studies involving real data and validated both by domain experts and by identifying and comparing the patterns found in this study with other phenomena described in the literature.
