Publication Abstract

Morenoff, Jeffrey, Robert J. Sampson, and Stephen W. Raudenbush. 2001. "Neighborhood Inequality, Collective Efficacy and the Spatial Dynamics of Homicide." Criminology, 39(3): 517-560.

Highlighting resource inequality, social processes and spatial interdependence, Morenoff et al combine structural characteristics from the 1990 census with a survey of 8,872 Chicago residents in 1995 to predict homicide variations in 1996-98 across 343 neighborhoods.
