  1. *Rate ratio of taxicab driver homicide rates post-installation versus pre-installation of cameras.
  2. Rate ratio of taxicab driver homicide rates in camera cities compared to control cities.
  3. §Rate ratio of taxicab driver homicide rates in partition cities compared to control cities.
  4. The rate ratio represents an associated change in taxicab driver homicide rate for every increase of 1 year.
  5. **The rate ratio represents an associated increase in taxicab driver homicide rate for every 1 unit increase in city homicide rate.
