Crime: How big a problem is it in Evanston?


An undergraduate student and a professor at the University of Chicago are asking Evanston residents to complete a survey about community perceptions regarding crime in the community.

Micee Keels, an assistant professor in the Department of Comparative Human Development, and Paige Peltzer, a fourth-year student majoring in political science, are seeking residents from across Evanston to share their views in the study.

Keels says they plan to produce reports for city officials and the public from the data collected about factors that contribute to people's more- or less-accurate perceptions of crime levels and steps that could be taken to increase the accuracy of people's perception of the safety of their community.
