The major objective of this study was to examine how
physical characteristics of commercial centers and demographic
characteristics of residential areas
contribute to crime and how these characteristics
affect reactions to crime in mixed commercial-residential settings.
Information on physical characteristics includes type of business,
store hours, arrangement of buildings, and defensive modifications in
the area. Demographic variables cover racial composition, average
household size and income, and percent change of occupancy. The crime
data describe six types of crime: robbery, burglary, assault, rape,
personal theft, and shoplifting.
