Abstract: The objective of this paper is to describe the patterns of homicide at the local level for the Metropolitan Region of Chile for the period 2001-2013. Using quantitative methodology with data provided by public health agencies, the research analyzes the distribution and characteristics of the problem, and explores associations with variables theoretically related to homicide, including protective factors (public social expenditure, crime prevention initiatives, among others) as well as risk factors that may exacerbate violence (poverty, housing overcrowding and low income households). By describing trends, patterns and correlations across municipalities within Chile, the paper offers a distinct perspective on homicide, not well reflected in US-based studies of homicide.

Abstract: This project began as an attempt to create a comprehensive database of homicide, suicide and homicide-suicide cases in a Midwestern county that has a higher than average suicide and homicide rate for the region. The goal of collecting such a database was to understand the conditions that lead to lethal violence in order to develop more effective intervention and prevention strategies. Further, by studying this data and emergent patterns, there is a hope that this information can be used to assist professionals in the identification, investigation, prosecution of cases or the coordination of resources. This study will chronicle the researchers’ attempt to develop a scholarly methodology to assist in the analysis of twenty years of coroner and prosecutor files and develop a useful database for researching the circumstances surrounding lethal violence.

Abstract: The United States experienced a period in the late 1980s and early 1990s in which the national homicide rate increased rapidly and then peaked at a high level. The goal of this project is to analyze variables related to the longitudinal increase in the diffusion of homicide rates through cities. This project will focus on the effects of key social variables linked to increased susceptibility to homicide rate increases, including measures of city population size and density, demographic composition, unemployment, and resource deprivation, as well as a measure of policing that may have hindered the rate increases. The role of the location of major cocaine hubs is also considered. The dependent parameters of the epidemic analyzed include the presence, magnitude, and duration of the epidemic period. The results indicate the preferred statistical model varies for each epidemic characteristic, although population density is the strongest predictor for both the presence and duration of the epidemic.

5. Nieuwbeerta, Paul. "Criminal careers of homicide offenders: do offenders of different types of homicides show different trajectories?" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Criminology, Royal York, Toronto, <Not Available>. 2019-10-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p32228_index.html>

Abstract: Up to recently research on criminal careers of homicide offenders was seldom, and if done – with some exceptions – typically based on small samples. Recently data are collected on every homicide and the conviction careers of the offenders in the Netherlands in the period 1992 - 2004. This dataset makes it possible to conduct in-depth analyses of various aspects of criminal careers of homicide offenders. This paper analyses the full criminal conviction histories of all homicide offenders convicted in the Netherlands between 1992 and 2004. The paper analyses how the risks of being convicted develops during adolescence, early adulthood and adulthood, and how it cumulates into the homicide. The criminal trajectories are analyzed using latent class growth curve models. Special attention is given on how criminal careers differ across offenders of different types of homicides - e.g. partner, family, robbery, other criminal, arguments, sexual and other homicides.
