Immigration, Gender, and Crime: Why Female Immigrants Commit Less Crime Than Their Male Counterparts

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



Abstract:

Literature on the relationship between immigration, gender, and crime is limited, and that which does exist has largely focused on the criminal behaviors of male immigrants. As such, this study is meant to expand the extant body of research, and explores patterns of offending by female immigrants. Using data from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health, we examine factors that may contribute to the lower rates of criminal behavior that are observed in female immigrants when compared to their male counterparts. We then use social control theory to explain our findings
