Age-cohort analysis of arrest rates

David Greenberg, Nancy J. Larkin

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    Logistic regressions of age-period-cohort models for city arrest rates are estimated with data from seven U.S. cities for the years 1970-1980 to study the dependence of officially designated criminality in select offense categories on age. A sensitivity analysis is carried out to determine how dependent the findings are on details of model specification.
