Abstract

En este trabajo estudiamos la relacion entre victimizacion y pobreza, particularmente si la pobreza incrementa o disminuye la probabilidad de ser victima de un delito. Los datos utilizados corresponden a la Encuesta Socioeconomica de Victimizacion y Violencia (ENVVI) 2009. Utilizando un modelo probabilistico Logit y tres medidas de ingreso o pobreza -zonas de atencion prioritaria (ZAP), la educacion del jefe de familia y el nivel de ingreso familiar- se encuentra que los hogares en situacion de pobreza tienen una mayor probabilidad de ser victimas de un delito, en particular robo a casa habitacion, despues de controlar por los efectos de la autoproteccion, exposicion y Area metropolitana. Como recomendacion de politica se propone mejorar las instancias para realizar las denuncias simplificando los tramites y generando confianza entre las personas, especialmente entre aquellas de menores ingresos.
