Are crimes memorable incidents? Skogan (1986: 87) quoting Biderman noted that ‘respondents have to do a great deal of thinking and slow reflection before they can remember even fairly serious crimes of which they were victims some time ago’. A second aspect of memory effects is the possibility of lying by respondents about, for example, non-stranger assaults and a third aspect is the telescoping of victimization incidents which may involve bringing forward ‘old’ victimizations into the survey’s reference period.

NOTES 1 Gottfredson and Hirschi are the more ambitious: they claim ‘to explain all crime, at all times, and, for that matter, many forms of behaviour that are not sanctioned by the state’ (1990: 117). Braithwaite describes his theory as ‘a general theory of crime’ (1989: vii), but restricts his attention to economically advanced societies and specifically excludes from the theory ‘the small minority of criminal laws that are not consensually regarded as justified’ (1989: 3). 2 Though it is not without its problems, especially in an era of ‘green’ issues, we use this concept throughout this chapter as the most convenient generic description of analyses of the relationship between place, crime and offending.
