Economic Investment and Crime in Washington, DC

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



Abstract:

The purpose of this analysis is to shed light on the relationship between large-scale economic investment and crime in Washington, DC neighborhood clusters (N=39) from 2001 to 2006. Using panel data and a two-way fixed effects analytic strategy, results indicate that investment (in millions of dollars) and crime rates (per 1,000) are inversely related controlling for disadvantage and time effects. Further analyses indicate that the strength, magnitude, and direction of this relationship varies according to type of investment (e.g. industrial, retail), as well as outcome variable (i.e. violent versus property crime). Residential investment has the strongest and most consistent negative relationship with both violent and property crime, suggesting that the population changes which accompany residential investment may be responsible for reduced crime. Theoretical and policy implications, as well as future research directions are discussed.
