  • Introduction to Crimes Kiosk Defining and Measuring Crime: Introduction to Measurement of Crime Transcript

    Roslyn Muraskin

    Crime occurs, and crime is something that is a part of our everyday lives. To understand how much crime there is, as to understand why crime occurs, you need to do something about it. The first step is to measure it. The first step we have is to measure it. How many people are affected by crime? How many victims do we have? What causes crime to occur? Are there hotspots in the area throughout the country that are worse than others? What causes individuals to go out and commit these crimes and how much crime is really there? We hear often about how crime is on the decline, crime is on the increase; why is that and do we know what that all means? Well in order to understand it, we have to have something that measures crime and tells us ‘this is where crime occurs, this is what happens when crime occurs and these, this is how victims we have involved in crime.’

  • How Crimes are Measured

Utilize FBI Uniform Crime Report data and select one offense, such as burglary, in two metropolitan areas.

Choose metropolitan areas with different data.

Write a 700- to 1,050-word paper comparing the occurrence of the offense in the selected areas. Identify the number of occurrences reported to the police for each area, and address the following questions:

  • Which area had more reported incidents?
  • What were the rates of the crime for each area?
  • Did the rates change over time in either area?
  • What factors might explain the differences in the rates?

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.
