Long-Term Follow-Up of Juvenile and Adult Delinquency with Samples Differing in Some Important Respects: Cross-Validation within the Same Research Program

  • Merrill Roff

Abstract

Problems of crime and the correctional system have received a great deal of attention in recent years. This set of studies presents some factual information bearing on these problems. This has been obtained from follow-ups covering periods of from 10 to 35 years using populations which had already been studied for shorter periods of time. These were parts of a comprehensive program of life history studies dealing not only with offenses but also with other kinds of problem behavior.
