Whereas Finland shows the third smallest property crime rate, its contact crime incidence is only surpassed by England and Wales and Australia. 3 Crime and Potential Factors of Crime Differences in crime are subject to many different factors.

According to many crime theories, family disruption is held responsible for the emergence of crime (especialIy of crime comrnitted by youths).

8) it is a logical consequence that the estimation results will also show a certain variation. In estimation practice, however, "[ ... ] these theories share many ofthe same independent variables" (Agnew 1995:363). Thus, empirical reasons seem to be more important for the discrimination between possibly conflicting results. Empirical studies might vary with respect to the starting-point of data collection (official institutions, (potential) offenders or victims), the degree of data aggregation (individual or aggregated data), the dimension of the data (panel, cross-sectional or time-series data), the choice of the dependent variables (different crime categories, initiation or continuation) and explanatory variables and the statistical method applied to the data.

Skogan (1991) provides a list of far-reaching consequences of crime for social and economic organisations: • physical and psychological withdrawal from community life, • weakening of the informal social control processes that inhibit crime, • decline in the organisational life and mobilisation capacity of the neighbourhood, • deteriorating business conditions, • importation and domestic production of delinquency and deviance, • further dramatic changes in the composition of the population.
