Labor Force Participation, Labor Markets, and Crime
Robert D. Crutchfield (au)
This project examined the relationship between labor market experience and crime. In particular it is a study of how individuals’ employment and educational circumstance affects the likelihood of engaging in acts of common crime. The authors also studied how the characteristics of residential neighborhoods interact with individual characteristics to affect criminal involvement. The goal is to answer the following questions: (1) How do employment and job qualities effect individual young adults’ involvement in crime? (2) How do neighborhood characteristics effect young adults’ involvement in criminal behavior and how is the relationship between individuals’ employment and criminal involvement conditioned by neighborhood characteristics? (3) How are juvenile employment and education related to delinquency? (4) How do parents’ labor market and education experiences affect juvenile delinquency? (5) Which, if any, neighborhood characteristics are associated with juveniles’ involvement in crime? And, how are the relationships between juveniles’ employment and educational experiences conditioned by characteristics of the neighborhoods that they live in? Figures.
