Youth Crime and Employment Patterns in Three Brooklyn Neighborhoods


This 1984 report presents the findings of the Employment and Crime Project's ethnographic studies on the relationships between work and crime involvements among a sample of "high-risk" youths in three different neighborhoods of Brooklyn, New York. The study was intended to address the gaps in information regarding the relationship between employment and crime. Very little data on the relationship existed, and what there was produced conflicting or ambiguous findings.
