According to figures from the Department of Justice, the less you have, the more you have to lose, apparently. Looking at the correlation between property crime and household income levels, the DOJ found that those with a household income of less than $7,500 were subject to the highest rate of property crime--200 per 1,000 households. Households earning $50,000 or more were victims of far fewer incidents of property crime--less than 140 per 1,000 households. See the graphic below to get a better sense of the data.
