Thompson, William E.; Dodder, Richard A.
Adolescence, v21 n82 p365-76 Sum 1986

Data were collected from 677 adolescents in a variety of high schools and correctional institutions, and divided into categories by race and sex. Factor analysis indicated that the structure of the relationships among the seven containment variables and delinquency was substantially different among black females. (Author)
