|Abstract:||This bachelor thesis explores crime development in rich countries and compares
it with crime development in the Czech Republic. The aim of this bachelor thesis
is to statistically verify thoughts discussed in The Economist magazine about the
downward trend in crime development in rich countries. In the first part of the
thesis, terms related to crime are defined. Subsequently, rich countries are determined.
In the second part, the crime development in the rich countries is explored
through a fixed effect model estimation of panel data. In the third part, crime development
in the Czech Republic is analyzed by using a simple regression model
and an autoregressive model. In the final part of the bachelor thesis, an econometric
model analyzes factors that generally affect crime, especially wealth of countries.
The arguments about the downward trend in crime development in rich countries
are supported by statistical examination.
