6) Changes over time in the distribution of crime among individuals from different socioeconomic backgrounds
Results of this study show that crime trends differ by socioeconomic background: decreases in crime (theft offences) are greater among the more affluent, and increases (violent crime) are primarily located among the lower levels of the income distribution. Different mechanisms can contribute to an understanding of why crime has become increasingly concentrated among less affluent social groups. http://journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1177/1477370816682979
