ALVARADO LAGUNAS, Elías; VALENCIA SANDOVAL, Karina  and  ITURRALDE MOTA, Óscar. Impact of the social environment on the theft of microenterprises in the metropolitan area of Monterrey. Econ. soc. territ [online]. 2019, vol.19, n.59, pp.1035-1058. ISSN 2448-6183.

This article presents a characterization of microenterprises in the metropolitan area of Monterrey, with data from the Attorney General’s Office of Nuevo León and the newspaper El Norte of 2016, using two discrete binary election models, logit and probit, which obtain the effects of location and neighborhood on the probability of being robbed with violence. The results show that the social environment is a decisive factor for this type of crime; characteristics such as the distance to a hospital and areas with high marginalization increase this probability, while the proximity to parks, roads and police stations decreases it.

Keywords : location characteristics; neighborhood; crime; robbery with violence; microenterprise.
