    Determinants of violent crime rates : observing education and population density by Lesnansky, Christopher James

    Education and violent crime rates appear to be negatively correlated. Research has also suggested that living in a densely populated city may promote more violent behavior. This paper explored the effects that education and population density has on violent crime rates in cities within the United States. It was found that if a higher percentage of population graduates high school, violent crime rates will decrease. It also was found that as population density increases, violent crimes will increase as well. This should promote the notion that the more funding put into education will have a direct impact on lowering violent crime rates.
