I will be completing my Masters Degree in this May, 2015. As I search for jobs, I have to choose a different community near to my office location. My friends and relatives suggested me to stay in a community where the house rent is low to avoid being a victim of crime. A victim of crime? Yes. Most people have a perspective that the crime such as theft occurs in the community, where the income is more. In other words, more money = more crime, less money = less crime.
How far is it true? In order to find answer to this question, I began my analysis of relationship between the crime rate vs socioeconomic indicators.
