Juvenile crime in Spain
AbstractThis article studies the role of age structure and gender on crime rates across Spanish regions. Using a regional dataset for the period 1993 to 2003, and after controlling for social and economic factors such as unemployment, urbanization, migration, regional welfare and economic development, results support the existence of an age-crime profile: Spanish youngsters are more prone to commit crime.
