Sociology Study by Bragg, Young, Slaney & Passmore
(Passmore et al)
To investigate which gender is most likely to be a victim of crime.
We predict that females are more likely to be a victim of crime.
We looked at official statistical data from previous years and found the following trends:
This general trend goes against our hypothesis
Victims by Gender:
This support our hypothesis.
Were victims of crime more than the males in these age brackets.
However in the age bracket of 45 – 54, both males and females were equal victims of crime.
Also in the age bracket of 25 – 34 males were victims of crime more than females.
That being said It may also be that none of our respondents had been abused domestically.
Overall our results support our hypothesis that females are victims of crime more often than males.
This also contradicts the background research we did.
