Abstract:

Relying on innovative extensions of both the routine activities (Osgood et al. 1996) and the social disorganization perspectives (Sampson et al. 1997), we test the hypothesis that unstructured socializing leads to increases in violent behavior within urban communities. We also examine whether living within a high collective efficacy neighborhood reduces the impact of unstructured socializing on violence. This paper uses three waves of data from the Project on Human Development in Chicago’s Neighborhoods Community and Longitudinal Surveys. Results from a two level hierarchical liner models with robust standard error support our hypothesis, suggesting that dwelling within a high collective efficacy neighborhood attenuates the effect of unstructured socializing on violent behavior.
