Crime and beliefs: Evidence from Latin America

Rafael Di Tella, Javier Donna and Robert MacCulloch

Economics Letters, 2008, vol. 99, issue 3, 566-569

Abstract: We find that perceptions of crime and individual experience with crime (crime victimization) are positively correlated with left-wing beliefs within countries, controlling for income and other correlates of ideology, in a sample for Latin American countries in the mid-1990's.
