Child Development, v70 n5 p1181-96 Sep-Oct 1999
Used semi-parametric mixture model with boys assessed repeatedly from 6 to 15 years to approximate a continuous distribution of developmental trajectories for aggression, opposition, and hyperactivity. Found that a chronic oppositional trajectory, with other trajectories held constant, led to covert delinquency only. A chronic physical aggression trajectory, with other trajectories held constant, led to overt delinquency. (Author/KB)
