Notes

  1. This statement is remarkably ironic because Farrall and Calverley state that Laub and Sampson retraced 11 per cent of the cases from the Gluecks’ original delinquent cohort some 35 years later (p. 202). How Laub and Sampson were to interview those subjects that were dead (49% of the follow-up sample) is never made clear. See Laub and Sampson (2003: 70–75) for a more accurate discussion of the follow-up response rate.
