crimes committed by males but not on females (Dunaway et al., 2000). Regardless, all variables should be taken into consideration for a better understanding. Dunaway et al. (2000) found that social class and the general adult population are weakly related in self-reported criminality. However, there is proof that suggests a connection is identified by race and the type of crime (Dunaway et al., 2000). I believe there still needs to be ample research from various people to get a satisfactory interpretation of the class and crime data. Besides the government, law enforcement, criminologist, and educators, I think that the main people that can benefit from this type of data is all the citizens. The information can better prepare people when they are looking to move to a different neighborhood, as many like to research the area and its crime rates. It can also be beneficial to how State legislature will go forward in combating the problem and safeguarding its neighborhood and citizens. Studies show the product of research, but it is not to say that only men commit crimes because that would be a lie. As well

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
