  • Abstract

    Analysis of the development of property crime in the German ´Reich´. The historical research of delinquency has a deficiency in processed data showing the long-term tendency of criminal- and penalty-development on different regional and economic aggregation levels. The “Working paper of criminal statistics I” is a compilation of statistical information on the development of the total delinquency as well as on special offenses – in particular on property crime. Furthermore, the working paper contains information about sanctions. The data, documented as time series, are arranged in systematic aspects for Germany from 1882 to 1973. Topics: Subcategorisation of the Study (Tables in the ZA-Database HISTAT): - Thievery and defalcation by sex and age groups (1882-1936) - Thievery and defalcation by occupation group and sector, condemned Persons (1882-1936) - Population at the age of criminal responsibility, statistical number of condemned and absolute number of condemned persons (1882-1913) - Penalties: total condemned persons, simple theft and aggravated theft (Index 1913=100) - Penalties: total condemned persons, simple theft and aggravated theft, absolute number of persons (1882-1936).
