Abstract [en]

This report presents results regarding fear of crime amongst young people in a small Swedish town, Ljungby. It also considers the experience of violence and other types of crime. A questionnaire was distributed to 320 students in upper secondary school during October 2001. The results from these questionnaires shows that female students more often than male students state that they are worried when they are to walk home alone at night. Nearly 70 % of the women in this study says that they often or sometimes are afraid when they walk home without company. About 90 % of the male students report that they hardly ever feel worried when they walk home alone at night.

41 % of the students state that they sometimes are afraid of crimes. The majority of these students are female. The women state that they are afraid of being raped whilst the men report being afraid of assault.

35 % of the students have been victims of crime. Most of these students report theft. 36 % of these young men and women have been threatened and 24 % of them have been assaulted. The majority in both cases is men. 55 % of the victimized students did not report the incident to the police. The two main accounts for not doing this are the two following; ”it was only a minor crime” and ”the police cannot do anything anyway”.
