As a means of improving our understanding of the significance of the residential
neighbourhood, we have examined exposure to property crime, studying the
extent to which differences in the risk of exposure to crime are related on the
one hand to individual and household characteristics and on the other to
neighbourhood conditions and differences in where people live. The data are
drawn from interview surveys of living conditions, which also include a number
of questions relating to criminal victimization. These survey data have been
combined with register data relating to residential neighbourhoods. The focus is
directed at different districts in urban areas, grouped on the basis of
accumulated resource deficiencies.
