Seasonality and crime has been a subject of criminological research since its
foundation and a way to explain when certain types of crime are most likely to
occur. Temperature fluctuations and seasonality are intertwined and interact with
each other and the different crime rates from one season to another are not defined
only by the environmental component, but by the social one as well.
Whether crime rates have predictable cycles and when the crime rates are on their
highest or lowest levels by month are some of the questions that can be answered
through the research of seasonality of crimes. Research generally concludes that
offenses do differ with the seasons (homicide being a possible exception). Quetelet
(1969/1842) concluded that the peaks for property crimes occurred in the winter and
for violent crimes in the summer and his claims heavily influenced later thinking.
Crimes committed by women can be inserted in several groups of the crimes from
the Criminal code of RNM, and a large number of them are from the group of
crimes against the property and crimes against the person and body. The collected
data refer to convicted women offenders in the two biggest cities in the Pelagonia
region – Bitola and Prilep, for a 5 year period from 2011-2015.
