Who reported fear of crime in the neighbourhood?

0

Urban residents’ reports of fear of crime in the neighbourhood were patterned by a number of socio-demographic characteristics (Table 1). Most notably, the percentage of women who reported feeling somewhat or very unsafe while alone in their neighbourhoods after dark was 3.6 times higher than the percentage for men. This finding is consistent with results from the 1993 and 1999 cycles of the GSS on victimization (Besserer and Trainor 2000; Sacco 1995).
