Measuring the Impact of Crack on Homicide Rates of Young Black and White Males, 1980-2000

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



Abstract:

Despite much speculation by scholars that the dramatic rise in homicide rates in the mid-1980s and early 1990s was due to the introduction of crack cocaine into major U.S. cities, few have empirically assessed this relationship using cross-temporal measures of the prevalence of crack cocaine. This study examines whether state-level changes in the prevalence of crack cocaine between 1980 and 2000 are associated with changes in both White and Black male homicide rates. To measure cross-temporal changes in crack cocaine prevalence, we rely on a three-item indicator (cocaine arrests, cocaine-induced deaths, and DEA drug busts) of crack cocaine use developed by Fryer et al. (2005).
