Hi everyone! It is well recognized that crime and delinquency of young people place considerable economic loss on society, from an economic standpoint. I am trying to find an appropriate way to estimate these costs in Hong Kong. Appreciate it if you could give me some advice to calculate. Or maybe provide me with some practical examples.

One currently employed strategy to estimate the cost of crime is the “bottom-up” approach (Cohen, 1998) that takes into account victim-related costs (lost productivity, pain, and suffering, lost quality of life, etc.), criminal justice costs (police, courts, and corrections), and the loss of productivity for the offenders due to incarceration. Belfield and Levin (2009) identify a variety of costs associated with juvenile crime including the costs of operating the criminal justice system for policing, trials, and sentencing; the costs of incarceration, parole, and probation; the costs for restitution for victims, medical care, and lost tax revenues; and the marginal excess tax burden to provide government services. In addition to government costs, social loss associated with crime includes costs directly imposed on victims; transfers of assets from victims to criminals; avoidance costs by potential victims; and productivity losses from participating in criminal activity rather than work.

It is said that a treatment evaluation should also include activities evaluations. Would you please kindly give me a clue about it?

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?

I have designed a large-scale survey about the life satisfaction of low-income families in Hong Kong. Is it appropriate to use the electronic survey through mobile phones?
