Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to compare how the crime statistics between suspected women and men have been over time in Sweden during the years 1995-2015 regarding assault, robbery and vandalism. This study will also examine possible underlying explanatory factors to why people commit crimes. This survey will present crime statistics for respective gender between the years 1995-2015 on basis of charts and tables, as well as statistics from different agencies in this quantitative secondary analysis. There is a sharp difference between suspected women and men, the study indicates that men are overrepresented within all crime categories. The change over time indicates that the percentage of suspected men has decreased within all three crime categories. The major conclusions in this study indicates that women tends to follow the same pattern as the men, except when it comes to the crime assault, where the women tends to indicate a rising path. Within the various types categories of crime, theft is the crime with the highest number of suspected men and women. Possible underlying causes may vary, but unemployment and economic growth (GDP) tends to be plausible factors.
