**Exp(b1)**: The odds of not feeling safe among women are 1.38 times as high as among men.**Exp(b0)**: The odds of not feeling safe are 0,303 among men.**Exp(b0)*Exp(b1):** The odds of not feeling safe are (1,38*0,303) among women.

**b1:** The logarithm of the odds of not feeling safe among women are by 0,322 higher than among men.**b0:** The logarithm of the odds of not feeling safe is -1,195 among men.**b1+b0:** The logarithm of the odds of not feeling safe among women is (b0+b1=-1,195+0,322).

**Conclusion:** The results support the hypothesis, stating that “a higher proportion of women don’t feel safe while walking alone in local areas after dark than men. (p<0,05 and b1=1,380).
