Casinos have been linked to organised crime , with early casinos in Las Vegas originally dominated by the American Mafia   and in Macau by Triad syndicates.
According to some police reports, incidences of reported crime often double and triple in communities within three years of a casino opening.
It has been said that economic studies that show a positive relationship between casinos and crime usually fail to consider the visiting population at risk when they calculate the crime rate in casino areas.
Such studies thus count the crimes committed by visitors, but do not count visitors in the population measure, and this overstates the crime rates in casino areas.
Part of the reason this methodology is used, despite it leading to an overstatement of crime rates, is that reliable data on tourist count are often not available.
