Description
SOCIAL DISORGANIZATION IN RURAL AREAS  Osgood & Chambers (2000) examined 264 US counties with average population of 10,000 (none more than 98,000)  Like earlier Chicago School researchers, used Census data and official arrest rates (for violent crimes).  Found that social disorganization variables of residential instability (mobility), ethnic heterogeneity and family disruption were strong predictors of crime in rural areas.
