dc.description This issue is the first of three in Series 3a, "The Strength of Community-level Rates of Association," mapping Anchorage neighborhood characteristics by census block area, highlighting the correlation or lack of correlation between those characteristics and the level of crime and social deviance in the neighborhood as measured by police calls for service for six types of offenses. Maps in this subseries should be compared with the maps in Series 3b, "An Examination of Police Service Deployment (Police Calls for Service)," for a full picture of the "strength of association." en_US
dc.description.abstract 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. en_US
