dc.description This issue is the third 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 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. en_US
