Abstract

Many studies in Western society have examined the determinants of fear of crime. However, research on fear of crime has rarely been conducted for Asian countries, particularly South East Asia. We examine the relationship between the concern of terrorism and fear of crime in the Philippines. Other determinants of fear of crime are also considered. Data were derived from the 1995 Social Weather Stations Survey in the Philippines. Statistical analysis reveals that concern of terrorism and four other factors, residential location, gender, marital status and victimisation due to home break-ins, were significant determinants of fear of crime in the Philippines. Policy implications and limitations are discussed.
