Title Does where you live affect how safe you feel? Degree of recognition National Media name/outlet ABC Radio National Media type Radio Country/Territory Australia Date 20/07/20 Description Researchers have found older people are likely to be more fearful of crime, but that's only part of the story. In some areas, younger people are just as afraid.
What's behind this perception of being increasingly unsafe, even in areas with low rates of crime? And can improving subjective security help to prevent crime?
