dc.description.abstractThis thesis covers the concentric zone theory of crime as it applies to the city of San Antonio, Texas. Contributions of Burgess and Shaw and McKay are detailed as well. It is hypothesized that the crime rates of the different zones in San Antonio will generally adhere to Shaw and McKay’s concentric zone theory, which means that crime rates are expected to decrease the further one moves away from the center of the city. Empirical comparisons of the crime rates for each zone are also provided.
