Abstract

Reviews the literature concerning the general impact of the physical environment on social disorganization, crime and juvenile delinquency, with a specific focus on the relationship between household density, building density-design and juvenile delinquency. Data are drawn from a sample survey of 835 adolescents in a suburb of one of Canada's largest cities and are analyzed with the individual as the unit of analysis. -Authors
