In the Shadow of the Great American Crime Decline: Crime across U.S. Cities in this Decade

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



Abstract:

Much scholarly research has focused on aggregate crime trends across the United States during the period of what has been appropriately deemed “The Great American Crime Decline”. Many researchers have pointed to what they believe are the factors that may have played a role in this decline and which did not. There is much less research however, on crime trends during the current decade. Additionally there has been significant change and growth for particular U.S. cities, as well as certain segments of the population. The current paper employs a panel modeling approach and aims at taking a comprehensive look at crime rates across a large number of U.S. cities to determine if any significant trends are currently unfolding, with an eye towards changes in age structure and population growth as well as a number of commonly used socio-economic variables. This study employs a large panel dataset making it possible to determine how changes in covariates are associated with year-to-year changes in the crime rate across the sample of cities.
