This data collection effort is an investigation of
criminological and sociological factors within the Black community
with a focus on the alleged high incidence of violent crime committed
by Blacks. Four communities within Atlanta, Georgia, and four within
Washington, DC, were selected for the study. Two communities in each
area were designated high-crime areas, the other two low-crime areas.
Variables include the respondents' opinions on the relationship of race
and socioeconomic class to crime, their fear of crime and experiences
with crime, and contacts and attitudes toward the police. Demographic
data include respondents' gender and religion.
