Unit of Observation:
Adult Santa Ana, California residents living in six specific neighborhoods.
Data Collection Notes:
The data in this study are all qualitative. As a result, the standard ICPSR product suite is not available for this study.
The Townsend Raitt neighborhood transcript is shorter than the other transcripts. Conversations with the investigator have revealed that the transcript deposited with ICPSR is complete.
The study was designed to better understand the
thinking process that leads people to fear gangs and specifically to understand how the four perspectives on fear of crime (indirect victimization, disorder/incivilities, community concern/decline, and
subcultural diversity) apply to fear of gang crime specifically.
