Due to the variety of microlevel research, specific discussions and examples of other research papers using this level of analysis are also presented in the following section. MICROLEVEL RESEARCH O N THE PHYSICAL ENVIRONMENT A N D CRIME In microlevel research on the physical environment and crime, researchers examine the site-specific physical characteristics believed to influence victimization. Instead of census tracts, the individual building, street block, or university campus becomes the area of study.

Sampson also assessed the inter­ action effects of these variables on crime to better understand the complexity of the relationship between macrolevel information and crime. He found that in highly urban areas poverty has a greater effect on theft than in suburban or rural areas; poverty exacerbates the effects of structural density on theft (the effect of multiple unit structures on crime is greater in poor areas), and urbanization interacts with structural density to predict rates of violent crime (structural density has less effect on violent crime rates in urban areas).

The most powerful techniques for the spatial analysis of crime are quite spe­ cialized and tend to emphasize the importance of real-time views to ensure timely responses. For example, police agencies are not usually interested in crime patterns that occurred in a neighborhood 10 years ago; it is the pattern during the past shift, day, week, or perhaps month that commands attention. Law enforcement usually wants to know the location of hot spots, how patterns are changing, and what inter­ ventions might reduce crime.
