  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: fear of crime, victimization, moderation, unemployment.

We aimed at explaining the «fear-victimization paradox» (the less victimized social categories show the highest levels of fear) applying multilevel analysis on an Italian national sample (N = 1.868; mean age = 41.38, SD = 16.21; 56.5% women). A crosslevel interaction highlighted that indirect victimization influenced fear of crime just for people living in high unemployment rated communities.
