|Title:||The Spatial Distribution of Crime in the Hamilton-Wentworth Region|
|Keywords:||spatial distribution;crime;socio-economic;planning policy|
|Abstract:||<p> Previous studies of the spatial distribution of crime have attempted to link crime with various sociological theories. It is the purpose of this paper to determine crime rates for the Hamilton-Wentworth region and to determine its distribution. Furthermore, a comparison of crime rates and socio-economic variables will be used to determine whether there is an association between the two elements. In conclusion, the relevance of this study to previous studies will be addressed, as will the potential ability of similar studies to effect planning policy. </p>|
