In addition to describing respondents’ perceptions of causes of crime, recent changes in crime levels and the extent of anti-social behaviour in the local area, the bulletin illustrates three commonly used measures of concern about crime:
worry about crime and personal safety;
perceptions of the risk of victimisation; and
perceptions of the effect of ‘fear of crime’ on quality of life.
