Social Change and Crime Rate Trends: A Routine Activity Approach.
Cohen, Lawrence E.; Felson, Marcus
American Sociological Review, v44 n4 p588-608 Aug 1979
It is hypothesized that the dispersion of activites away from households and families increases the opportunity for crime and thus generates higher crime rates. Data on changes in such variables as labor force participation and household composition are used to support the hypothesis. (Author/RLV)
