Abstract

Property crimes are the most often committed crimes in the Republic of North Macedonia. The reasons of committing these crimes are mostly to gain some benefit, avoid paying something, illegally earn money etc. Having this in mind, it is reasonable to consider that some people may be encouraged to break the law by finding illegal ways of making money, if they cannot find another source of income. In no way that can be justified, but it can be examined as a possibility of having a correlation. The purpose of this study was to find if there is a significant correlation between the unemployment rate in the Republic of North Macedonia and property crimes rate in the period of five continuous years starting from 2014 until 2018. The results of the study are gotten using a comparison method and by calculating and analyzing statistical data for unemployment rate and property crimes rate. Having these results is not only of great value for understanding the possible reasons of property crimes offenders, but may also contribute to many other researches in this subject either as an idea or as a source to professionals and researchers in the fields of criminology, law and economics. Keywords: property crimes rate, unemployment rate, poverty
