Measuring the Intensity of Crime in Small Areas of a City

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Crime patterns across the smaller areas that comprise cities are typically measured by event counts and resident population based event rates for aggregate categories such as “property crime” or “violent crime.” Such measures can mask substantial differences in crime mix and crime risk across neighborhoods. This study utilizes two alternative measurement approaches—the specific crime location quotient and the crime severity index -- to highlight neighborhood differences in crime patterns across a British Columbia city.
