Work and Crime: The Effects of Labor Stratification.
Crutchfield, Robert D.; Pitchford, Susan R.
Social Forces, v76 n1 p93-118 Sep 1997
Data from a National Longitudinal Survey of Youth subsample (aged 18-21 in the first survey year) indicate that criminal involvement is related positively to time out of the labor force and negatively to workers' expectations of job duration and to student status. Results suggest that the stability of good jobs or academic involvement inhibits criminality. Contains 57 references. (SV)
