...Andrel Rogers; Burkhard von Rabenau Abstract Place-of-birth-by-residence data, tabulated by age and sex for the same areal units in two successive censuses, have been used to estimate intercensal net migration flows.

As a result, the number or rate of crimes can be unstable. To alleviate this concern, I present sensitivity analyses that aggregate violent crime over a six-year...
