Title:
Victimization at the Convergence of Race, Ethnicity, and Criminal Opportunities
Conference/Meeting Date:
2012
Abstract:
Criminological research has documented the disparities in the risk of criminal victimization by race and ethnicity. Past studies have reported that Blacks and Hispanics face a greater likelihood of victimization, particularly violent victimization, compared to Whites. This study examines the interplay of race, ethnicity, and criminal opportunities to explain the experience of victimization. The data are drawn from the Longitudinal Cohort Study and the Community Survey of 18-year-olds subjects in the Project on Human Development in Chicago Neighborhoods (PHDCN). We employ multilevel analyses to estimate the independent effects on the risk of personal and property victimization of race, ethnicity, and various indicators of criminal opportunities at the individual and neighborhood levels. source
