Measuring Fear of Gang Crime in a Developing Nation

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



Abstract:

Although research on fear of crime in the United States is extensive, studies examining fear of crime in developing nations are scarce, and only a handful of scholars have examined fear of gang crime in the U.S. or abroad. Using multi-wave survey and focus group data collected in a distressed community in Trinidad between 2006 and 2008, this paper examines fear of gang crime in a developing nation faced with a significant gang problem. Multivariate analyses examine the factors that influence fear of gang crime, including socio-demographic characteristics, perceived neighborhood collective efficacy and disorder, victimization, and views of the police. The implications of the results and the importance of comparative research are discussed.
