Not All Fun in the Sun: An Analysis of Homicide in Florida

Christina Lanier, University of Delaware
Lin Huff-Corzine, University of Central Florida

A variety of national studies have examined the relationship between homicide and economic factors. Although the findings from the majority of this research suggest a relationship between these factors and homicide, we ask how these factors impact homicide in the state of Florida? Specifically, using the sixty-seven Florida counties as the unit of analysis we investigate the effect of socioeconomic variables. Results of statistical analysis are discussed, as are implications for future research.
