Research Proposal – Empirical Political Analysis


Youth crime rates in America are the subject of research and statistical analysis. There have been studies concluded by many government agencies to determine trends. However, delinquency among young people is influenced by many factors; such as parental involvement, education and sociological background. Family structure statistics are scarce in Florida, therefore, the authors would like to compare trends and housing statistics with juvenile crime rates based on race.  The current proposal also addresses the question whether this relationship is based on family conditions, age, location and sociological patterns.
