'Crime-related Fears within the Context of New Anxieties and Community-Based Crime Prevention' is the subtitle of the research project of which the following research results form a part of. Nevertheless, not fears and anxieties are discussed here, but the extent of satisfaction of people with their neighbourhood. The idea underlying this part of the research is that in addition to the negative aspects that are generally research objectives, the focus should also fall on positive aspects. The reason for this to prevent the negative and also to strengthen the positive sufficiently. Positive factors at district level were a familiar social climate, an inviting social climate, friendly people in the district and good relations with the neighbours. These positive variables were strong enough to compensate for several negative influences.
