Problems of Prediction of Delinquency and Related Conditions Over a Seven Year Period.
Thurston, John R.; And Others
The writers of this paper draw on their own research efforts and an extensive review of the literature related to prediction of delinquency (and the related factors of personal and social adjustment, health problems, welfare status, and academic underachievement) to point out a number of deficiencies and difficulties encountered in research efforts in this area. Specific discussions are included on the need for longitudinal studies, single predictors vs. multiple predictors, adequacy of criteria of delinquency, the basis of predictor selection, the contribution of a new predictor, the prediction of individual delinquency, and sophisticated statistics and delinquency prediction. Related documents are ED 019 153 and RC 004 259. (DK)
