The chapter continues by examining what research tells us about the distribution of this kind of victimisation and about the characteristics of victims. Drawing on qualitative research, the chapter then discusses the problem of street crime from the perspective of young people involved and suggests that the statistics probably underestimate the scale of the problem in certain areas. The policy implications of this focus on victimisation in public spaces are discussed by way of conclusion. Defining and measuring the problem First, however, it is necessary to stipulate what is meant by ‘street crime’.

Problem-substance use by parents is an area of increasing research interest, evidenced by the surge in UK-based qualitative studies produced in the last decade, but how far has this research interest permeated actual policy-making? In 1992, Famularo et al. (p. 457), working in the US, declared that ‘child maltreatment and substance abuse have both emerged as critical issues for public policy and clinical practice’. Since then, the number of problem drinkers and illicit drug-takers has risen, the number of research studies has at least doubled, and the results are beginning to filter through to a level at which they can inform UK policy-making.

P. 86) While the studies discussed so far have been beset by methodological problems and are marred by their limited focus, in more recent times several qualitative studies have been undertaken. Through interviews with parents who are problem-substance users and the children of those parents, more in-depth information has been collated on the potential consequences for children of parental problem-substance use. The results of these studies, many of which originate in the UK, will be discussed in the next section.
