dc.description.abstractThis study reports the findings of alternative measures of poverty and crime. A convenience sample was used in order to determine whether Ruby Payne’s (2006), A Framework for Understanding Poverty, is consistent with income. Participants in the sample responded to a survey based on their perceptions of their daily lives utilizing Payne’s (2006) behavioral dimensions. The implications of these findings are profound for recognizing Payne’s (2006) framework as alternative measures of poverty. Overall, results revealed that Payne’s typology was not consistent with income and that there was not enough crime in the sample to make a conclusion regarding poverty and crime.
