      Justice Center, University of Alaska Anchorage (Justice Center, University of Alaska Anchorage, 2004)
      This issue of Anchorage Community Indicators provides a brief examination of the relationship between housing density and delinquency in the Municipality of Anchorage. A commonly held belief is that crime rates rise as housing density increases, despite only sparse scientific evidence in support of this theory. These data show no relationship between housing density and delinquency at the block group level within the Municipality of Anchorage.
