Notes:
87 p. p., This paper explores the effects of crime and insecurity on well-being -- both happiness and health -- in Latin America and the Caribbean. The authors posited that crime victimization and insecurity would have negative effects on both happiness and health, and having found that they did, tested the extent to which those effects were mitigated by people's ability to adapt to those phenomena.
