The Effect of Neighbourhood Perceptions on Adolescent Property Offending

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


The aim of this report is to examine young people's involvement in property crime and to assess whether such behaviour can be predicted by neighbourhood characteristics at an early ate. A key aspect of the investigation is whether different offending trajectories are influenced to a greater extent by young people's perceptions of their neighbourhood or by the actual physical and social features of the neighbourhood itself.
