It’s a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood: The Role of Perception on Social Disorganization Theory

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



Abstract:

Social disorganization theory has been utilized recurrently to examine crime rates in neighborhoods. This theory is commonly examined by aggregate measures of community blight. However, this research focuses on the individuals’ perception of social disorganization. We hypothesize that positive perception of neighbor attitudes will decrease social disorganization. Using secondary data from Louisville and Lexington, Kentucky (N=2,309) we ran structural equation models to examine: the role of individual attitudes on neighborhood involvement and the perception of neighbors attitudes on getting involved in the community which we used to assess overall social disorganization. Implications for our research will be provided.
