Abstract

There is a wealth of research and criminological enterprise that focus on the link between unemployment and crime. In this paper we will examine the relationship of crime and unemployment (especially as a bi-directional relationship) from time-series data, micro and macro-level analysis, and ecological studies and canvass some explanations posited for this relationship (with reference to social embeddedness and underclass arguments). We then discuss some current strategies and their consequences, and detail the crime impacts of unemployment in the 1990s.
