REPLICATION OF "UNRAVELING JUVENILE DELINQUENCY" IN PUERTO RICO.
GLUECK, SHELDON; AND OTHERS
THE 1ST YEAR OF A 5- TO 6-YEAR PROJECT TO REPLICATE A BOSTON STUDY OF JUVENILE DELINQUENCY IN PUERTO RICO WAS REPORTED. THIS FINAL REPORT COVERS ONLY THE PILOT PHASE OF THE PROJECT. THE PROBLEM ON WHICH THE RESEARCH IS FOCUSED IS TO DETERMINE WHICH OF THE FINDINGS OF "UNRAVELING JUVENILE DELINQUENCY," AS THE STARTING POINT FOR THE PUERTO RICAN INVESTIGATION, WOULD TURN OUT TO BE ESSENTIALLY SIMILAR FOR THE SAN JUAN AND THE ORIGINAL BOSTON STUDIES. THE AIM IS NOT MERELY TO ANALYZE THE SIMILARITIES AND DIFFERENCES OF THE TWO STUDIES, BUT TO DRAW THEREFROM--IMPLICATIONS FOR CRIMINOLOGICAL INVESTIGATIONS, GENERALLY, AS WELL AS CONSTRUCTIVE MODIFICATIONS OF EXISTING EDUCATIONAL, WELFARE, AND FAMILY-GUIDANCE PRACTICES IN PUERTO RICO. DURING THE 1ST YEAR'S ACTIVITY, THE TECHNIQUES ORIGNALLY USED IN THE BOSTON STUDY HAVE BEEN LARGELY ADAPTED TO THE INVESTIGATIVE NEEDS OF THE SAN JUAN PROJECT. DATA GATHERING TECHNIQUES AND METHODS OF INVESTIGATION HAVE BEEN PERFECTED TO FACILITATE THE ASSEMBLING OF COMPARABLE INFORMATION ON A POPULATION SAMPLE IN SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO. (TC)
