Age and the Explanation of Crime.
Hirschi, Travis; Gottfredson, Michael
American Journal of Sociology, v89 n3 p552-84 Nov 1983
One of the few facts agreed on in criminology is that most crimes are committed by younger persons. However, the age distribution of criminals is sufficiently invariant across a broad range of social conditions that one cannot use age distribution as a foundation for theories of crime. (Author/IS)
