Determinants of Crime in Virginia: An Empirical Analysis
Ali, Abdiweli M.; Peek, Willam
Contemporary Issues in Education Research, v2 n4 p1-12 2009
This paper is an empirical analysis of the determinants of crime in Virginia. Over a dozen explanatory variables that current literature suggests as important determinants of crime are collected. The data is from 1970 to 2000. These include economic, fiscal, demographic, political, and social variables. The regression results indicate that crime is a function of a number of variables, which supports the predictions of the empirical literature on crime.
