  • The Strength of Association: Neighborhood Poverty and Social Deviance

    Justice Center, University of Alaska Anchorage (Justice Center, University of Alaska Anchorage, 2005-02)
    This issue of Anchorage Community Indicators examines the strength of association between neighborhood-level poverty in Anchorage neighborhoods— measured as the percentage of households falling below the federally designated threshold of poverty — and social deviance — measured as the annual rate of police calls-for-service for various offenses. These data show poverty to be significantly related to a number of police calls-for-service indicators. These simple measures of association (not causation) align with studies in other contexts which have found that communities experiencing economic hardship bear a double burden in that they also suffer a disproportionate amount of social problems.
  • The Strength of Association: Population Density and Social Deviance

    Justice Center, University of Alaska Anchorage (Justice Center, University of Alaska Anchorage, 2005-02)
    This issue of Anchorage Community Indicators provides a brief examination of the relationship between population density and social deviance in the Municipality of Anchorage. A commonly held belief is that social density is positively correlated with social deviance, despite only sparse scientific evidence in support of this theory. A previous issue of Anchorage Community Indicators ("The Strength of Association: Housing Density and Delinquency," ACI 3a(1) (Jul 2004)) found no evidence of a relationship between housing density and deviance. The current issue builds on these previously reported findings by introducing a second measure of social density: population density, once again finding no evidence that social density of Anchorage neighborhoods is associated with community-level rates of social deviance.
