finding temporal patterns in homicide series - the Canadian case /
"It is believed by criminologists that the incidence of crimes committed against persons is highest in the summer. Knowledge about the annual patterns and other temporal behavior of such crimes can help authorities in prevention. The objective of this study is to reveal the temporal behavior of murders in Canada and assess if they are affected by trend-cyclical and/or seasonal influences. The series analyzed comprise the period 1961 to 1980 and are classified according to suspects and victims. Only the quarterly series display a significant seasonal pattern, with the peak occurring in the third quarter. We have also analyzed the relationship between the trend cycle of the murder series and two other variables, namely unemployment rate and rate of growth of the 15-to-44 age group"--Abstract.
