Fear of Crime among an Immigrant Population in the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area.
Ackah, Yaw
Journal of Black Studies, v30 n4 p553-73 Mar 2000
Studied fear of crime among Ghanaian immigrants in the Washington, D.C. area, taking aspects of Ghanaian culture into account. Survey responses of 300 immigrants showed that the majority of the Ghanaian immigrants experienced fear of crime, but those who had been urban residents in Ghana were less fearful, probably because they were already familiar with higher crime rates.
