Parental perception of neighbourhood safety affects children’s activities and can have a significant impact on children’s health, development and wellbeing.
Perceptions of safety often relate to perceptions of crime and social problems in the neighbourhood, previous experience as a victim of crime, and the level of trust in the local community.
In the data provided, ‘feels safe’ refers to adult respondents that reported they felt ‘safe’ or ‘very safe’.
