For instance, for the past six sweeps of the BCS respondents have been asked to indicate how much of a problem seven different forms of ASB are where they live (within 15 minutes of home). 2. What is immediately apparent is that the majority do not perceive ASB to be a huge problem, contrary to what we have been led to believe.

Robinson 1950) by suggesting that individuals are more likely to be anti-social if they live in poorer districts. There is the similar concern that all social housing tenants can be labelled as anti-social by association.
