Segrave, Jeffrey O.; Hastad, Douglas N.
Youth and Society, v14 n4 p437-55 Jun 1983
Among high school students, value orientations (indicators of societal control) significantly influenced delinquency involvement, while socioeconomic status and perception of limited opportunities (indicators of social structure) indirectly affected delinquency (through their influence on value orientations). The research supported Cernkovich's structural and control theory model of delinquency causation. (Author/MJL)
