This study aims to determine the relationship among the crime rate and income, age groups, occupation and the "seting free" as a deterrent variable, through two different methods of analysis. The first analysis was made by a panel-data method that covers the period of 1980-1994. The second one, Error-Correction model, covering the period from 1964 to 1994, was employed to test the long-term relation between the variables and the existence of a co-integrated vector. The empirical findings show that the crime was positively related with all of the variables mentioned except for the variable of "setting free". Although all the values were below the expected values for the variable of "setting-free ", the existence of a negative relationship was clear.
