Crime and Unemployment in Greece: Evidence Before and During the Crisis

Ioannis Laliotis ()

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: This paper explores the relationship between unemployment and crime in Greece before and during the crisis using panel data at the regional level for the period 1999-2013. 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.
