TL;DR: A brief analysis of the quality, reliability and content of research and currently available statistics on ethnicity and crime in Australia, and suggests methods of improving knowledge on the relationship of ethnicity to crime as mentioned in this paper.
Abstract: Recent criminological literature shows that socioeconomic disadvantage and disorganised communities contribute to a neighbourhood's crime problem The literature also shows that new immigrants may suffer these disadvantages and inherit disorganised communities more often than others This paper provides a brief analysis of the quality, reliability and content of research and currently available statistics on ethnicity and crime in Australia, and suggests methods of improving knowledge on the relationship of ethnicity to crime

Journal Article
TL;DR: This paper examined the role that factors such as vulnerability (both physical and social) and experiences of violence play in the formation of women's perceptions of personal safety based on data from the Women's Safety Survey and found that women's fear of crime is greater among those who have lower incomes, those in older age groups, and those living with a partner.

TL;DR: A collection of statistical tables was prepared for the Second National Outlook Symposium on Crime in Australia, held in Canberra in March 1977 as discussed by the authors, which details the level of crime in all Australian jurisdictions; the place of occurrence of crime by type of crime; offenders, charges and arrests; responses to crime in terms of cost, personnel and case loads; and an international perspective on crime in selected countries and major regions.

TL;DR: The authors examined the extent and relevance of repeat victimisation in Australia, and how individuals and households that suffer from repeat victimization are similar to, or different from, single incident victims.
Abstract: This report discusses the extent and relevance of repeat victimisation in Australia, and how individuals and households that suffer from repeat victimisation are similar to, or different from, single incident victims. The geographical distribution of repeat victimisation is examined, as well as the relationship of a number of personal and household characteristics with both single and repeat victimisation. The likely links between repeat victimisation and fear of crime are highlighted and findings and policy implications for crime prevention that emerge from the results are presented.

TL;DR: Regression analysis of average 1985-1994 murder rates across USA cities suggests that murder could be especially associated with more severe cases of childhood lead poisoning, and the impact of blood lead is also evident in age-specific arrest and incarceration trends.

TL;DR: A study of repeat burglary in an area of Brisbane using police calls for service data is presented in this paper, where the authors demonstrate that the prevalence of residential repeat victim addresses (hot dots) is of a similar magnitude to that found in studies in the United Kingdom and that the time distributions of revictimisation are identical with those found in the UK and elsewhere.
Abstract: To date there has been little Australian research on repeat victimisation This is a study of repeat burglary in an area of Brisbane using police calls for service data We demonstrate: (a) the prevalence of residential repeat victim addresses (‘hot dots’) is of a similar magnitude to that found in studies in the United Kingdom; (b) the time distributions of revictimisation are identical with those found in studies in the UK and elsewhere; (c) ‘hot spots’ (small areas with high crime density) can be identified by statistical analyses of spatial concentrations of incidents; (d) unstable hot spots tend to be temporary aggregations of hot dots, whereas stable hot spots seem to reflect more the social and physical characteristics of certain localities; and (e) the overall incidence of burglary could be reduced by at least 25 per cent if all repeat victimisation could be eliminated There are a number of areas where concepts and techniques for repeat victim research could potentially be strengthened: (a) clarifying the connections between hot dots and hot spots, particularly through exploration of the concept of a ‘near repeat address’; (b) applying survival analysis to the data on the time periods between victimisations; and (c) using moving average techniques to examine changes in the spatial distributions of burglary over time

TL;DR: It is argued that capitalism and patriarchy, through their reliance on a restrictive definition of masculinity, limit men’s choices and impact on their health.
Abstract: This article argues for a gendered psychology of men's health. We argue that capitalism and patriarchy, through their reliance on a restrictive definition of masculinity, limit men's choices and impact on their health. A psychology of men's health situates men in their social, cultural and political contexts, addressing the social construction of masculinities and the effects of beliefs about appropriate behaviour on men's health. At the individual level, gender roles can explain men's reluctance to seek help; avoidance of emotional expression; unsafe sexual behaviours; and risk-taking including drug use, crime and dangerous sports. At a social level, identification of the self with paid work, and avoidance of family activities, are problematic. Dominant social discourses position these as freely chosen behaviours, implicitly blaming individual men for risky or antisocial choices; there is little awareness of the role of social constructions in men's choices. A gendered psychology of men's health uses of a variety of epistemologies, focuses on health in its broadest sense, considers the context and is sensitive to cultural diversity.
