Anticipating the Future Based on Analysis of the Past: Intercity Variation in Youth Homicide, 1984-2006
Carrie Mulford (ed)
Youth involvement in lethal and nonlethal violence has varied substantially over the past two and a half decades. Most previous studies of youth homicide analyzed trends at the national level or calculated youth homicide rates during a specific period for a sample of cities and assessed whether city characteristics accounted for intercity variation of those rates. More recently, scholars assessed relationships of within-city changes in structural conditions in 83 of the largest U.S. cities and changes in overall homicide rates from 1970-2000. Extending current research on homicide trends within cities or groupings of cities, this study addressed previously neglected issues by estimating the temporal trend in youth homicide offending from 1984-2006 and then modeling city-specific explanatory predictors influencing this trend. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
