Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the importance of temporal-spatial variability in the distribution of victimization. It applies the concept of 'crime flux'—i.e., the interaction between victimprevalence and victimization-concentration—to two-wave victim survey data from two communities (Hope and Foster 1992). Crime flux assists in applying a perspective that specifically incorporates a focus upon change in the distribution of crime. By doing so, it is hoped to place distributional concepts in a more central position in the analysis of crime data and the evaluation of crime control policy.
