Crime and Unemployment in Greece: Evidence Before and During the Crisis
Ioannis Laliotis ()
MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany
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.
