    Description:

    This article uses the 2004 General Social Survey on criminal victimization to explore how men and women of the core working age population (25 to 54 years) living in Census Metropolitan Areas differ in the precautions taken to avoid victimization. The results indicate that though men and women do not differ substantially in the amount of crime they perceive around them - they do differ in the precautions taken to avoid victimization. This difference remains unchanged even when other factors like fear of crime, income, age, and victimization experiences are taken into account.

Information is provided about the socio-economic characteristics of caregivers, the types and frequency of care provided, the use of additional sources of assistance, etc. The primary focus is on the financial, social and work consequences associated with assisting a parent who lives far from a caregiver's place of residence.
