Abstract:Various authors have tested for the presence of a relationship between unemployment and crime, employing time-series or cross-sectional data. However, little use has been made of the British Crime Survey. Consequently, in the present paper, we test for the presence of a relationship between male unemployment and crime, using regional and area-level crime data from the 1992 British Crime Survey, with socio-economic and demographic data being taken from the 1991 census. Use of these data sets allows us to look at four differing measures of crime: we can study possible relationships between male unemployment and the incidence, and prevalence, of both property and personal crimes. Area-level data are also employed to test more ecological explanations of spatial crime patterns.
