Abstract: The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of individual, neighborhood, and city characteristics on fear of crime. While previous research has shown which factors predict fear of crime at each level, few have considered all levels simultaneously to discover which characteristics predict fear of crime when considered together. Using data derived from the NCVS 12 Cities survey, the study will analyze which characteristics, individual or structural are better predictors of fear of crime. This study finds that individual, along with neighborhood and city level contexts are significant predictors of fear of crime.
