Thursday, 28 February 2013
This bulletin is based on findings from the 2011/12 Northern Ireland Crime Survey (NICS). 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.
