Did the Industrial Revolution Lead to More Crime?

Description: One of the big factors affecting crime is the economy of the country: what work do people do, and where? Who is rich and who is not? From 1750 to 1900, Britain went through some extraordinary changes. The population rose from 10 million in 1750 to 42 million in 1900 and vast numbers moved to the cities. For many people, life in these new cities was tough. They lived in over-crowded, squalid housing. Disease was common. These cities grew up because of industry that required a huge work force of semi-skilled or unskilled workers to manufacture on a large scale. Examine case studies and primary documents related to crime during the Industrial Revolution. Relate the issues to today. Standard 10.3.3
