The Cost of Crime: Issues for California-Specific Estimation
Group: UC Davis, California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation
This review focuses on developing cost-of-crime estimates for use in cost-benefit analyses of policies and programs in California. The large volume of literature on the topic of the economics of crime contains few attempts to produce estimates of the cost of individual crimes and little agreement on how to derive such estimates. This interim report focuses on the most relevant issues pertinent to the feasibility of deriving valid and useful estimates for California-based criminal justice cost-benefit analyses. It is intended to serve as the foundation for discussions of how best to proceed with this activity.
