Title: A Study of Demographic and Economic-Based Explanations For Variation In Street Robbery Rates In U.S. PDF

Creator: Helm, Ronald
Publisher: Western Washington University
Description: Researchers studying crime suggest that there is substantial variation in the amount of serious crime across large urban jurisdictions such as central cities. There have been many attempts to account for crime variation. The following raises questions about how populations may be linked with crime variation. One key component of serious crimes involves those that are conceptualized as being instrumental crimes. The following exercises focus on one category of instrumental crimes, street robberies. In this exercise we will attempt to address the following question: Do population features influence the rate of robbery in the largest U.S. cities? We will also begin to assess economic conditions to see if these alter the original relationships.
