Portraits of Contemporary Adolescent Offending: Findings from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth

Publication year: 2006  |  Cataloged on: Dec 08, 2011

This is a set of slides from a presentation by Melissa Sickmund of the National Center for Juvenile Justice (NCJJ), at the 2006 National Institute of Justice conference. It highlights the findings about delinquency and other problem behaviors from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth '97, a nationally representative sample of almost 9000 youth aged 12-16. These findings were previously presented in a NCJJ report entitled, 'Self-Reported Law-Violating Behavior from Adolescence to Early Adulthood in a Modern Cohort', by Carl McCurley.
