THE DELINQUENCY THAT DOES EXIST IS A MALE PROBLEM, OCCURS PREDOMINATELY AMONG YOUTH FROM LOWER-ECONOMIC-STATUS BACKGROUNDS, REFLECTS ALIENATION FROM COMMUNITY AND SCHOOL, AND SEEMS TO HAVE A SUBCULTURAL COMPONENT. ADULTS SEEM WILLING TO SUPPORT PROGRAMS TO HELP TROUBLE-PRONE YOUTH. TABLES PRESENT PERCENTAGES OF IN- AND OUT-OF-SCHOOL DELINQUENT AND NONDELINQUENT YOUTH IN THE SMALL CITY AREA BY ECONOMIC, CULTURAL, AND FAMILY VARIABLES.
