Spatial Aspects of Robbery, Burglary and Vehicle Theft 10-Year Change in Neighborhood Characteristics and Crime
Components of Proposed Study Research Site: Raleigh Robbery, Burglary, and Auto Theft in 1993 and 2003 Census Data (Social Attributes) Tax Assessor Data (Land Parcel Uses) Configuration of Traffic/Streets Hot and ‘Cold’ Spot Analysis of 36 Cluster Areas
Goals To evaluate the extent to which various social characteristics of residents in and proximate to a neighborhood affect crime counts To determine whether the street structure (configurations) have an independent effect on crime counts To assess interaction effects between social and configurational aspects of neighborhood To identify additional factors that might be accounting for hot and ‘cold’ crime spots
Analysis Models of Diffusion of Crime and other Attributes across Neighborhoods Models of the Nested Structure of Neighborhoods (Hierarchical Linear Models) -- Face Blocks within Larger Neighborhood Contexts
Hot and ‘Cold’ Spot Sub-Analysis in 36 Cluster Areas Orthophotography On-site observational study (using video- cameras, multiple time periods) Observation of signs of territorial functioning, ‘broken windows’, etc. Three Contexts: commercial, multi-family, detached housing
