Two-rays approach in the integration of victimological and recorded data on criminality

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Accurate and valid data on criminality are the foundations of any efficient crime policy and crime prevention. However, modern criminal justice and crime prevention has to deal with multiple, often conflicting sources of data. Our paper considers the prospects of integration of the most important data on criminality: victimological and recorded data. The way of their integration – a two-rays approach (RAS) – has been proposed. A new integrated criminality research tool, able to combine victimological and recorded data has been developed. This tool was used in the nation-wide representative study of criminality in Lithuania. The outcomes of this study and the integrated (“two-ray”) investigation of criminality are discussed.
