Abstract [sv]

Studien syftar till att undersöka associationen mellan narkotikaanvändning och egendomsbrott samt narkotikaanvändning och våldsbrott. I studien används material från ett forskningsprojekt kallat RESUMÉ. Urvalet i den populations-baserade RESUMÉ studien består av 2500 individer mellan 20 - 24 år födda mellan 1987 - 1991 varav 47,4% män och 52,6% kvinnor. Resultatet visade att det fanns positiva samband mellan alla typer av narkotika (cannabis, anabola steroider eller andra hormonpreparat samt annan narkotika) och egendomsbrott samt våldsbrott. Även positiva relationer hittades mellan de olika narkotikatyperna, oberoende av varandra, och egendoms- samt våldsbrott. Narkotikan förklarar tillsammans 10% av egendomsbrotten och 7% av våldsbrotten. Resultaten kan användas som stöd till att utveckla insatser mot narkotikaanvändning samt brottslighet.

Abstract [en]

The aim of the present study was to examine the association between illegal drug use and property- and violent crimes. In the present study, data from the Swedish population-based RESUMÉ study were used. The study included 2,500 participants between the ages of 20-24 who were born between 1987 and 1991, 47.4% males and 52.6% females. Results showed a correlation between illegal drugs (i.e., cannabis, anabolic steroids and other hormonal drugs and other illegal drugs) and property- and violent crimes. The results also showed positive independent relationships between illegal drugs and property- and violent crimes. Together all drugs explained 10% of all property crimes and 7% of all violent crimes. These findings can be used to advance intervention strategies aimed at decreasing illegal drug use as well as crime.
