Based on the panel data of 31 provinces and cities in China from 2000 to 2015, this paper uses spatial econometric models to explore the spatial heterogeneity impacts of regional income gap and urbanization on crime rate. The research finds that, the impacts of regional income gap and urbanization on crime rate show obvious spatial non-stationarity and massive feature. Among them, the contributions of regional income gap to crime rate in eastern, central and western regions respectively account for 7.96%, 21.13% and 73.05% of the total contribution, while the contributions of urbanization respectively account for 43.28%, 48.97% and 7.75%. This paper finally puts forward some policy suggestions on promoting the coordinated development of urbanization and crime control.
