DutchConcern {cmm} R Documentation

## Concern about crime and social security in the Netherlands

### Description

Data from a trend study where two survey questions, regarding (i) concern about crime and (ii) concern about social security, were asked to randomly selected people in the Netherlands at ten different time points (November 1977 to July 1981). The data are tabulated in Bergsma, Croon, and Hagenaars (2009, Table 4.1, Table 4.2).

Section 4.1 in Bergsma, Croon, and Hagenaars (2009).

### Usage

data(DutchConcern)

### Format

A data frame with 5742 observations on the following variables.

S

Concern about social security (ordered): 1 = No (big) problem; 2 = big problem; 3 = Very big problem.

C

Concern about crime (ordered): 1 = No (big) problem; 2 = big problem; 3 = Very big problem.

T

time points (factor): 1 = Nov 1977; 2 = Jan 1978; 3 = Jun 1978; 4 = Nov 1978; 5 = Mar 1979; 6 = Oct 1979; 7 = Apr 1980; 8 = Oct 1980; 9 = Dec 1980; 10 = Jan 1981.
