Lethal Violence in Public Housing: A Product of Neighborhood Disadvantage?

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



Abstract:

Public housing and neighborhood characteristics have been popular topics of study in criminology. Previous research has determined that neighborhood disadvantage can influence crime. Likewise, the public housing literature has shown that neighborhoods containing housing projects have high rates of crime and violence. However, only a few studies have analyzed the relationship between public housing homicides and neighborhood disadvantage. Thus, a question that remains understudied, is the occurrence of homicides in public housing a product of neighborhood disadvantage or the physical conditions of the projects? Using Propensity Score Matching (PSM), this research explores the impact that public housing has on homicides occurring in Chicago’s projects between 1980 and 1995. Controlling for neighborhood disadvantage using PSM will provide more understanding of the relationship between public housing and violence.
