So, I recently made a sheet of data collected from the 2010 Census on Cincinnati neighborhoods. The data is from demographics about the neighborhoods of the city such as median household income and population.

The IV are Total Population, % (of Population) that are Male, % (of Population) that are Female, % (of Population) that identify as White, % (of Population) that identify as Black, Total Housing Units, % of Housing that is vacant, median household income, # crimes reported, and DV is crime rate (based on 1000 persons).

I'm using python to use data analysis libraries, but I'm not sure what types of variables you'd categorize each one as and what test would work the best for these variables? I would like to find significance of each IV, could someone help explain it to me?
