Gated Communities and Risk of Burglary Victimization

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



Abstract:

Over the past twenty years gated neighborhoods have experience phenomenal growth throughout both the developed and the developing world. One of the main reasons often provided for the proliferation of these fortified housing developments is crime and the concomitant fear of crime. Despite the common conception that residing in a gated community reduces an individuals’ risk of criminal victimization very little research has been conducted in this area, and none employing criminological theory. Using the routine activities approach as a theoretical backcloth we attempt to fill this gap by utilizing regression analysis to gauge the effect of gated communities on day time and night time burglary patterns in Tshwane, South Africa. In the analysis we found considerable evidence that residing in a gated community in South Africa increases your risk of day time and night time burglary victimization. We provide a number of possible explanations for this unexpected finding and discuss the implications of these results in the context of the routine activities theory.
