Of Demography and Drugs:

Testing Two 1990s Theories of Crime Causation

(p.81) Chapter 4 Of Demography and Drugs:
The City that Became Safe

Franklin E. Zimring

This chapter examines the two predominant theories of crime risk in the 1990s: the expansion of high-risk youth and the high rates of drug sales and use. These pessimistic indicators did not change much but also did not produce the criminogenic future that was expected.

Keywords:   New York City, crime risk, high-risk youth, drug use, drug sales
