Crime and unemployment in Greece: Evidence before and during the crisis

Ioannis Laliotis ()

Economics and Business Letters, 2016, vol. 5, issue 1, 10-16

Abstract: This paper explores the relationship between unemployment and crime in Greece before and during the crisis using panel data at the regional level. The results indicate the operation of a positive relationship between specific crime categories and male unemployment only during the crisis, a weaker effect of long term unemployment only on the total criminal activity and they reveal the existence of significant dynamics.
