Jeffords, Charles R.
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v17 n2 p103-11 1983
Examines one's fear of crime while walking in the neighborhood, and in one's home. Results showed age was positively associated with fear of crime in the former situation, but slightly negatively associated in the latter. Suggested that the aged may only be more fearful of crime in particularly dangerous situations. (JAC)
