Abstract

O presente estudo analisa o impacto da criminalidade sobre o bem-estar individual e social. A perda de bem-estar é estimada pela disposição a pagar dos indivíduos relativamente a uma cesta de serviços de segurança, captada pelo Método de Avaliação Contingente e calculada com regressão logit. Os resultados das regressões sugerem que a segurança pública é um bem normal e comum. Pode-se inferir que o valor monetário da perda de bem-estar associado ao sentimento de insegurança justifica a adoção de políticas públicas de combate à criminalidade.
