Description

This study reviews literature on the effects of tourism on crime in Hawaii and elsewhere. It analyzes Hawaii statistics — for the period from 1975 through 2002 — on rates of serious crime (i.e., UCR offenses), on tourism, and on other possible causes of crime. The study also compares Hawaii crime rates to national crime rates for the same period, and notes how the computation of crime rates would be affected each year if the presence of tourists were taken into account.
