Victimization and Fear of Crime in Elderly Public Housing Tenants.
Lawton, M. Powell; Yaffe, Silvia
Journal of Gerontology, v35 n5 p768-79 Sep 1980
Fear of crime was central in determining psychological well-being. Crime-related variables were minimally related to size of social space and activity outside the housing site. Planned housing serves a protective function and tenants are not necessarily made prisoners in their homes by crime or fear. (Author)
