Crime, gender and socioeconomics in Uppsala : An analysis of statistics on youths suspected of crime in the district of Uppsala (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med examensarbetet var att analysera ungdomsbrottsligheten i Uppsala kommun vad gäller brottstyper, områden och kön samt undersöka om det fanns några samband mellan ungdomsbrottslighet och socioekonomisk status på områdesnivå. Med hjälp av statistik över misstänkta ungdomar i åldern 13 till 20 i Uppsala kommun, så gjorde vi univariata och bivariata statistiska analyser. För att studera sambandet mellan områdesstatistik och misstankesfrekvens använde vi oss först av en korrelationsmatris, för att sedan gå vidare med en multipel linjär regressionsanalys. Resultaten visade på att det finns både skillnader och likheter gällande flickors och pojkars ungdomsbrottslighet. Den mest påtagliga skillnaden är dock frekvensen av misstankar. Vad gäller sambandsanalysen så förklarar den socioekonomiska statusen en relativ stor del av variansen i misstankesfrekvensen.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this thesis was to analyze delinquency in Uppsala regarding types of crime, neighborhoods and gender, as well as to study whether there was any correlation between delinquency and socioeconomics. By using data on suspected youths in the age of 13-20 in Uppsala, we did a univariate and bivariate statistical analysis. To study the relationship between the neighborhood structure and frequency of suspected youths we first used a correlation matrix and then proceeded with a multiple linear regression analysis. The results indicated that there are similarities and differences regarding delinquency of boys and girls. The most distinct difference was the frequency of suspected youths. Regarding the regression analysis, the socioeconomics explains a relatively large part of the variance of frequencies of suspected youths.
