An Explanatory Study of Homicide Trends in Los Angeles City From 1950-1999

Harold K. Becker, California State University - Long Beach

ABSTRACT
Fifty years of official Los Angeles police data on homicides will be used to study homicide trends in the city by month and year. Data will be separated into several time periods and analyzed during high risk social/political/disaster events (e.g., international conflicts, local domestic conflicts) and physical disasters (war, riots, political protests, earthquakes, etc.).
