ABSTRACT

Pandemic, Social Unrest, and Crime in U.S. Cities   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Introduction: "'During the spring and early summer of 2020 momentous changes occurred in everyday life in the United States. The COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic brought widespread quarantines and business closings. The killing of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer on May 25th triggered mass protests, many still ongoing, across the country. In this report, we examine the consequences of these conditions for crime rates in US cities.'"
