Perceived Reality: A Spatial Approach Linking Human Perception with the Reality of Crime

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In 1997 the Grandview-Woodland Community Policing Centre, with the advice and support of the Institute for Canadian Urban Research Studies at Simon Fraser University conducted a community survey, asking 720 people 30 questions related to crime, public disorder and quality of life issues in the Commercial Drive area in Vancouver, British Columbia. Ten years later, the same survey was replicated in the same locations with 727 respondents. Although this neighborhood went through significant changes over these ten years, the opinions of respondents remained substantially the same. However, the survey also incorporated a mapping component in which people were asked to circle the area they felt had the highest level of crime in the neighborhood. The difference between the 1997 and 2007 perceptual maps is stark. Crime data is used to explore these maps and to further understand the intricate relationship between perception of crime and public disorder.
