Trends in Youth Crime and Well-Being since the Abolition of Corporal Punishment in Sweden.
Durrant, Joan E.
Youth & Society, v31 n4 p437-55 Jun 2000
Examines trends in the well being of Swedish youth to determine whether they show improvement or deterioration since the passage of the 1979 corporal punishment ban. Data collected from various national sources indicate that rates of involvement in crime, substance use, rape, and suicide have decreased. Trends in rates of nonsexual assaults are equivocal due to shifts in enforcement. (SM)
