The intension was focused on the use of questionnaires, whether conducting them or referring to the ones already conducted. This was important for the provision of higher validity and accuracy related to the study. This is a tool with huge convenience particularly when there are a number of subjects for being handled. This tool contributes in facilitating quick and easy derivation of information in a shorter duration of time. The information collected has helped in investigating the impact of tourism on crime, and vice versa in a significant manner.
The data collected provides a strong suggestion that there is an extremely strong relationship between crime and tourism. However, the determination of this cannot be done to a greater limit of certainty. Firstly, referring to the data of crime, there are no differences between visitors and resident victims (Foster, 2008). While a rise in the population of tourist in general might result in increasing the level of crime in the entire area by making a contribution towards urbanization, along with other forms related to solution, there is no denial in the fact that the industry of tourist itself is known to be a factor to increase the rates of crime.
Further ahead, it has been found that the rates of crime in the areas of tourism are known to appear considerably high in comparison with what they actually are. This is due to the fact that these places have a large population of tourists as the determination for rate of crime is done in terms of permanent population that creates a rate of crime per 1000 residents. Such places in the United States of America include Honolulu and Las Vegas. If there is an involvement of a number of visitors, there can be an increase in the rate of crimes, but cannot accounted for the establishment of this particular rate (Chesney, 2013). Therefore, it can be stated that huge value should be given for considering the rate of crime.
