The study reported here aims to advance research methods by demonstrating the utility of observational rating scale to measure neighborhood physical and social characteristics. In a related vein, the study clearly points to the need for additional, focused research on neighborhood effects on child safety. The need to identify or develop the best possible indicators of child well-being, especially at small areas of geography is one of the more pressing challenges for indicators research.
