Rome, June 22 - ISTAT said Friday that over a third
of the Italian population, 33.9%, believe they live in an area
at risk of crime, up by 11.9 percentage points with respect to
the national statistics agency's previous survey on perceived
safety.
In the 2015-2016 period, it is estimated that 27.6% of
citizens felt little or not at all safe when going out alone in
the dark, and for 38.2% of citizens say crime affects their
habits very much or quite a lot, ISTAT said.
Compared to previous surveys, fear of crime is stable, while
the influence of crime on habits decreased from 48.5% to 38.2%.
"The sense of insecurity of women is decidedly higher than
that of men: 36.6% do not go out in the evening because of fear
(compared to 8.5% of men), 35.3% feel insecure when they walk
alone in the evening (19.3% of men)," ISTAT said.
"The elderly have a similar insecurity profile".
The statistics agency added that the percentage of people
worried about crime fell between 2008-2009 and 2015-2016.
It said that in the 2015-2016 period, 41.9% of citizens were
worried about being victim of bag-snatching or pick-pocketing
(down 6.3 percentage points from 2008-2009), 40.5% of an
aggression or a robbery (-7.1 percentage points), 37% of car
theft (-6.7) and 28.7% (-14) experienced fear for themselves or
their family members of being victim of sexual violence.
It said 60.2% of citizens are (very or fairly) worried about
their homes being burgled, a figure that is stable with respect
to the previous period.
