The Drivers of Perceptions of Anti-Social Behaviour, Research Report 34

Simon Mackenzie, Jon Bannister, John Flint, Sadie Parr, Andrew Millie, Jennifer Fleetwood

Research output: Book/ReportOther


Home Office Research Report 34 proposes that perceptions of anti-social behaviour (‘PASB’), in the technical British Crime Survey definition, are a matter of interpretation. There is frequently a mismatch between an objective measure of ASB, and perceptions. Based on a review of available research studies, the authors model two processes of interpretation that seem to be fundamental in driving this, and suggest that the reason why people make different interpretations of behaviour rests in social connectedness
