Minneapolis: Public Attitudes About Crime; A National Crime Survey Report.
National Criminal Justice Information and Statistics Service (Dept. of Justice/LEAA), Washington, DC.
This report presents part of the results of the National Crime Survey, an ongoing series of surveys sponsored by the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration and designed to provide insight into the impact of crime on American society. Based on representative sampling of households and commercial establishments, the program has two major elements--a continuous national survey and 26 separate surveys of central cities across the nation. The city surveys, administered to a scientifically designed sample of housing units within each jurisdiction, had a twofold purpose: to assess public attitudes about crime and related matters, and to develop information on the extent and nature of residents' experiences with selected forms of criminal victimization. This paper contains 37 data tables showing survey results for the city of Minneapolis, interspersed with analytical discussion. It also presents two technical appendices, a glossary, a copy of the survey questionnaire, and statistical information regarding the study. (Author)
