Crime and Justice Researchers Publish Findings on Mobility Patterns Using Social Media
Crime and Justice Researchers Wo, Rogers, Berg and Koylu examine human mobility patterns of crime through the lens of social media.
Research in this area focuses on the extent to which individual and macro-level behavioral outcomes are affected by aspects of communities. Researchers have explored the effects of various social processes and elements of the physical environment including land use patterns on violent and property crime rates and informal social control. Recent work explores the intersection of social networks and collective processes.
