Socio-demographic and criminal-legal characteristics of convicted of crimes in the sphere of economic activity. Criminological analysis of statistical data


We analyze statistical data on the socio-demographic and criminal-legal characteristics of convicted of crimes in the economic activity sphere (Chapter 22 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) in the Russian Federation for the period from 2011 to 2019. We establish that convicted of сrime under Article 175 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation stand out from the general mass of those convicted of crimes in the economic activity sphere due to their similarity in socio-demographic characteristics with convicted of crimes against property (theft). Analysis of the characteristics of the criminal’s personality traits allows us to conclude that among the persons who have committed crimes in the economic activity sphere, men are highly active; the highest frequency of registered crimes falls on the age group from 30 to 49 years; these categories of persons have a fairly high level of education (higher or secondary); the percentage of persons who have committed crimes in the economic activity sphere and at the same time had a criminal record is rather low; crimes in the economic activity sphere are committed with the predominance of the motive of self-interest, and in some cases, the status motive.
