Neighborhood Inequality, Collective Efficacy and the Spatial Dynamics of Homicide.

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.
