A survey conducted by the Pew Charitable Trusts' Philadelphia Research Initiative found many residents are more worried about crime than the country's sinking economy.

Of the 1,600 residents who were included in the survey, 45 percent said crime or violence was their least favorite aspect of living in Philadelphia. Some 37 percent said they don't feel safe in their own neighborhoods, while 36 percent cited crime as the number one factor that could force them to move elsewhere. On the plus side, 55 percent of those surveyed said they were satisfied with the level of police protection provided by the city.
