Immigrant Concentration and Violent Crime in Neighborhoods: A Social Disorganization Perspective

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



Abstract:

Recent research on how the new immigration has affected crime levels has primarily focused on the neighborhood level. Several investigators have asserted that the generally negative or null influence of the number of immigrants on violent crime reported in current studies disconfirms a basic prediction of the social disorganization perspective, i.e. there will be a positive relationship between the number of immigrants and rates of crime. In this paper, we propose that social disorganization theory is more complex and the expected impact of an influx of immigrants depends on the existing demographic and socioeconomic characteristics of neighborhoods. The derived hypotheses are tested with data on arrestees for violent crime in Orange County, Florida for 2006-2007.
