Abstract

This paper investigated the role of neighbourhood condition and ethnicity on fear of crime. It examined whether neighbourhood condition and ethnicity will have significant main effects on fear of crime. Survey data were collected from the British Crime Survey (2000). Respondents included 19,411 adults aged 16 and over in England and Wales. A (4X2) ANOVA design was applied; neighbourhood condition was a between group factor with two factorial levels (privileged and deprived), and ethnicity, another group factor had four levels (White, Black, South Asian, and Others). The dependent variable was the score of fear of crime. The results revealed that both neighbourhood condition and ethnicity had significant main effects on fear of crime. Recommendations were made drawing on research findings.
