dc.description This issue is the second 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 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. en_US
