Post-Katrina "Egohoods" and Crime: The Effect of Social Disorganization in NOLA Neighborhoods, 2006-2009

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



Abstract:

Following Hurricane Katrina, the social landscape of New Orleans, Louisiana, was drastically altered. As the city began to rebuild, communities were restructured and rates of criminal offending are speculated to have increased at an alarming pace. With these immense changes in the composition of the city, traditional methods for measuring criminality and the impact of community-level variables associated with crime have become less effective. The present analysis is an exploratory study of the impact of measures of social disorganization on the New Orleans crime rate from 2006 to 2009. Building on John Hipp’s groundbreaking development of “egohoods,” this research examines characteristics of neighborhoods, such as deprivation and residential instability, to determine their influence on rates of both violent and property crimes. By reducing the unit of aggregation to a neighborhood proxy, the “egohood,” the present study expands upon research surrounding Post-Katrina New Orleans and further develops new methodologies for researching the impact of communities on crime.
