ISAC Releases Report on Crime During COVID-19
May 31, 2023
ISAC is pleased to announce the release of a new research report on state-level crime trends in Idaho during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The report, Crime in Idaho During COVID-19: Time Series Analysis of Data from the Idaho Incident-Based Reporting System, presents analysis law enforcement data on reported crime, comparing the six-week period during March and April 2020 when a statewide stay-at-home public health order was in place to the same time period in other recent years (2018, 2019, and 2021).
Results indicate that total crime was significantly lower during the six-week period in 2020 compared to other years, dropping 28% from 2019 to 2020, then increasing 34% in 2021. A similar pattern was observed for drug/alcohol offenses, but not for four other offense types. Additionally, a significant drop in total reported crime was observed in mostly urban and mostly rural counties, but not in completely rural counties.
The full report is available online in the ISAC Publication Library.
