Thursday Podcast (Episode 9): Crime Statistics

Has crime rate increased or decreased? This question is still unanswered; however, it often becomes the main topic of discussion. How do we measure crime levels? What is the role of crime statistics in this process and to what extent is it enough to show a complete picture in terms of criminogenic condition?

Gnomon Wise Researchers Egnate Shamugia and Tamar Ketsbaia talked about these issues. The podcast also discusses the determinants of crime, the factors that may influence the behavior of the offender. Researchers have also reviewed a study published by Gnomon Wise, "Determinants of Crimes against Property in the South Caucasus - Empirical Analysis," which can be found at this link.
