The Association Between Blighted Property Remediation and Domestic Crime by Alcohol Availability


StartFragment

In a recent study led by Sandhya Kajeepeta, in collaboration with several PISC Scholars, including Michelle Kondo, PhD, Charles Branas, PhD, Sara Jacoby, PhD, and Christopher Morrison, PhD, examined the association between place-based interventions and changes in domestic crime. Overall associations was accessed using a difference-in-difference approach and moderation was accessed using a triple-difference approach. There analysis found that in areas with higher bar density, increases in domestic crime were lower near remediated lots compared with control lots. This study suggests that place-based interventions to reduce blighted properties may have contributed to fewer domestic crime incidents in areas with more bars.
