Abstract

Este artculo examina los determinantes de las tasas de criminalidad contra la propiedad a nivel minicipal, asi como sus efectos de espaciales. Se utilizan varias rondas de encuestas nacionales de victimizacion. Los resultados principales sugieren que el tamaño de la poblacion, las tasas de auto-proteccion y las tasas de criminalidad previas son las variables explicativas mas significativas de los crimenes contra la propiedad. Los resultados de las especificaciones espaciales presentan evidencia estadistica significativa de dependencia. Diferentes especificaciones espaciales sugieren dependencia positiva de los municipios vecinos. Dicho efecto parece creciente en años recientes lo que sugiere efectos de contagio creciente.
