Project Summary for 1996-MU-FU-0012 s7

The Pittsburgh Youth Study (PYS) examines the course of delinquency, substance use, and mental health problems in three samples of males. The samples were randomly drawn in 1987-88 from boys enrolled in the public schools in Pittsburgh, and after a screening procedure to increase the prevalence of high risk youth, have been regularly followed since then. Data collection has initially been funded by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention until 1991, from 1992 onward by the National Institute of Mental Health, and from 1997 onward by the National Institute of Drug Abuse. Secondary data analyses have been funded by OJJDP since 1993.

The PYS, under the auspices of the Program for the Study of the Causes and Correlates of Delinquency is a collaborative study with the Denver Youth Survey (Dr. D. Huizinga) and the Rochester Youth Development Study (Dr.T.Thornberry).

CA/NCF

This is a research proposal for the continuation of work under the aegis of the Program of Research on the Correlates and Causes of Delinquency (PRCCD) consisting of secondary data analyses. The secondary data analyses are mostly on existing data from the Pittsburgh Youth Study (PYS), but also involve data analyses on its two sister studies under the PRCCD, the Rochester Youth Development Study (RYDS), and the Denver Youth Survey (DYS). These analyses mine the existing data sets that cover more than a decade of data collection on the course of juvenile violence and serious delinquency in boys enrolled in this study, and the causes that affect that course. This grant also contains a supplemental research proposal for the current grant to establish a subcontract with the University of Washington for secondary data analyses on the data set collected by David Hawkins. The purpose of the latter analyses will be to address key questions pertaining to the overrepresentation of minorities in the juvenile justice system.
