Studies dealing with patterns of crime and delinquency in Australian cities are few. Vinson and Marshall (1973) compared crime rates for Sydney, Newcastle and Wollongong with selected North American cities of similar size, and computed urban and rural crime rates for New South Wales. A detailed and systematic analysis of crime in Geelong has been made by Biles and Copeland (1976), while Jameson (1970) has examined the spatial distribution of crime and delinquency in the Australian Capital Territory.
