Abstract or Summary
  • This thesis explores the relationship between crime, transportation network connectivity, and engineered facilities built to increase walkability through a case study of twenty-five sites within the city of Spokane, Washington. Using data spanning between 2008 and 2010, the author developed a GIS model representing conditions of the built environment, social and economic demographics, and crime rates within the randomly chosen sites. A partial F-test revealed little to no evidence that the transportation network connectivity affected crime rates within the study sites. Using permutation tests, the author found that specific pedestrian facility infrastructure correlated to higher crime rates as defined for the specific study sites. In all, this research provided patterns between crime rates and transportation networks which may be further explored in future research.
