Cimler, Edward; Beach, Lee Roy
Criminal Justice and Behavior, v8 n3 p275-86 Sep 1981
Investigated whether delinquency is the result of a rational decision. The Subjective Expected Utility (SEU) model from decision theory was used with male juvenile offenders (N=45) as the model of the decision process. Results showed that the SEU model predicted 62.7 percent of the subjects' decisions. (Author/RC)
