  • About Us | CRIME LAB | The University of Chicago
    homicide rates in America now are about the same as they were in 1900 The University of Chicago Crime Lab was launched in 2008 to use insights from basic science to help government agencies and non profit organizations develop innovative new approaches to reducing violence and work with them to test new innovations using randomized trials Basic scientific research has dramatically changed our understanding of what drives human behavior what types of social conditions are the most important risk or protective factors for violence involvement and how to manage and direct the activities of large scale organizations including the challenges of taking good ideas and making them work at scale Government agencies are typically not equipped to translate basic science into policy innovations We need to ensure that the frontier of policy innovation takes advantage of the frontier understanding from basic science of people and organizations Our other goal is to ensure that policymakers have adequate feedback about what their innovations are accomplishing so that policy approaches get better over time While randomized controlled trials RCTs are the standard for testing innovations in medicine they remain far too rare in the areas of crime policy and social policy more generally It is very difficult to identify the causal effects of policy interventions in the real world a problem that can lead to unhelpful or even quite harmful policy decisions Without good evidence policymakers have no basis for allocating scarce public sector resources across different potential uses other than hunches and politics By carrying out RCTs through public private partnerships and focusing on priority questions for government decision makers we seek to ensure and maximize the beneficial policy impact of our work We believe policymakers are most likely to act on new social science evidence when they are involved directly as

  • Why experiment? | CRIME LAB | The University of Chicago
    a virus researchers tried numerous different ways of vaccinating children against the disease Yet evaluations showed these early vaccines were not effective which led to more bench science which eventually led to Dr Jonas Salk s discovery in 1952 Even then the Salk vaccine only went into widespread use after it was confirmed in 1955 through a series of clinical trials to be safe and effective that is a promising idea that actually works in practice Figure 1 Deaths from Homicide and all causes 1950 2005 Source National Center for Health Statistics We have not been as successful in figuring out how to protect people from crime and violence Despite some cyclical variation over time the nation s murder rate in 2005 was roughly 20 percent higher than it was in 1950 The problem is not a lack of ideas or new programs Rather the problem is that in social policy unlike the ideal in medicine and public health new programs are rarely implemented in ways that can be rigorously evaluated We need rigorous evaluation because our theories about what is likely to work are far from perfect When developers advocates and elected officials pressed for a system of government housing in the 1930s few imagined the result would be projects like the high rises on Chicago s South and West sides While the problems created by high rise housing projects quickly became obvious the success or failure of most programs is more difficult to determine From its inception the Head Start program was criticized as having little impact on children but the program s benefits were later discovered to have been obscured by the extra home and neighborhood disadvantages experienced by participating children Overconfidence is also a risk In the criminal justice area claims to have discovered the Salk

  • Key Crime Policy Findings | CRIME LAB | The University of Chicago
    and Effective Institutions The New York Times reports on the results of the 2012 13 pilot study of BAM and Match style intensive math tutoring A great deal is known about the risk factors that characterize people who are involved with crime violence and drug use including individual level attributes such as gender age and race family level characteristics such as poverty or a history of violence and community level attributes such as high rates of residential instability Much less is known about the most cost effective policy strategy for reducing crime and violence Just because family poverty is correlated with delinquency does not mean that providing poor families with more income will reduce delinquency It is possible that whatever factors allow parents to succeed in the labor market might also affect their ability to be successful parents as well so that the correlation between poverty and delinquency might simply reflect the influence of other factors that influence both outcomes Moreover addressing persistent problems of poverty and social inequality will be a daunting long term task The fact that so many people who grow up in disadvantaged circumstances do not become involved with crime or violence suggests the existence of a range of other proximate risk or protective factors that could also be productive targets for policy intervention In what follows we provide a brief review of the data sources that are available for learning more about patterns of crime violence and risky behavior in the U S and then provide a brief summary of what is currently known about criminal justice education and social policy levers capable of reducing anti social or risky behavior Ours is necessarily a very selective review we focus on providing short accessible summaries of some of the major intervention approaches that have been tried

    report on crime guns Crime Lab Director Jens Ludwig Speaks at the National Press Club Crime Lab has been awarded a 1 million MacArthur Award for Creative and Effective Institutions The New York Times reports on the results of the 2012 13 pilot study of BAM and Match style intensive math tutoring As members of the Chicago community we are deeply saddened by each account of another young person in Chicago gunned down And like every other Chicagoan we want to see an end to this Despite the enormous toll gun violence takes on young people in Chicago and across the United States the evidence about what works to reduce youth gun violence is extremely limited The University of Chicago Crime Lab s mission is to work with community partners in Chicago and around the country to learn more about what works for whom and why to begin making progress in reducing the problem of crime and violence We believe that successful innovation requires doing a better job of learning from experience Our report Gun Violence Among School Age Youth in Chicago provides an overview of some Crime Lab s efforts to better understand the youth who are involved as victims and offenders in gun violence in Chicago and what types of intervention strategies might be helpful in addressing this problem This report prompted and helped to form a large scale project currently underway the Chicago Youth Gun Violence Initiative The first phase of this initiative the Design Competition involved solicitation of letters of interest from city agencies non profit and faith based organizations and private sector firms with promising ideas about pilot programs to reduce youth gun violence and promote positive youth outcomes The goal of the Design Competition was to select a winning project that if funds were
