Inequality, Metropolitan Structure and Crime in Brazil

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



Abstract:

Since the mid-1980´s Brazil, like many Latin American countries has experienced a rise in crime rates. While this increase in crime has been widespread, not all areas have experienced the same increases. Larger cities, for example have seen high rates of crime than smaller cities and towns. The link between city structure and crime has been well-explored in the criminological literature (e.g. Blau & Blau, 1982; Sampson, 1984, 1986), including some studies in Brazil (Beato, 2001) and demonstrates that factors such as inequality and heterogeneity explain some of the differences in crime rates at the city level. Using new data compiled at the city level in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil, that include a wider range of indicators than traditional measures of inequality and heterogeneity, this paper intends to re-examine the links between metropolitan structure and crime for two separate time periods: 1991 and 2000.
