I'm a licensed Agent in beautiful Pennsylvania! & I will be licensed in New Jersey by winter of 2013.
It's true as Licensed Agents, we can only describe houses not people, or scenarios, or school districts.
I can refer you to a website that can begin to help you:

Under The Fair Housing Act, a Realtor cannot provide you with the answer to the question you asked - we could loose our license for doing so.
My advice to clients is to spend time in the areas that you are considering - as well as ask on public sites that have non professionals to provide you with answers.
As pointed out, the Philadelphia Police department is an excellent resource - they actually have an wonderful interactive map of activity that can really help you make educated decisions.
Check it out!
Good luck -

No Realtor here can answer that question. You need to decide if you want to live in an area. Our obligation is to show you homes that you can afford wherever they may be and you limit the location.
