Runaway: Reality or Myth.
Gullotta, Thomas P.
Adolescence, v13 n52 p543-49 Win 1978
Cases of youngsters referred to a voluntary shelter program for runaways were examined. Three distinct subgroups were identified: runaways, "castaways" forced from home, and youngsters housed temporarily for other agencies. The demographic and circumstantial differences between these groups was felt to call into question the blanket designation of "runaway." (SJL)
