dc.description.abstractSmart growth is a building practice that goes to maintain and build better cities by placing housing and transportation options closer to shops, schools, and jobs. This study assesses whether cites utilizing smart growth principles have less crime. Through statistical analysis, this study attempts to show the statistical patterns of crime and their changes within areas utilizing smart growth principles. In order to investigate to what extent crime can be explained by the presence of smart growth principles, crime data was put together with other city demographics and physical characteristics. The results of this study shows varying results, suggesting cities utilizing smart growth principles could play a positive role on crime rates, which would complement existing knowledge and toolset in the literature and could potentially help local governments to attract more funding for smart growth development.en_US
