The Rochester Youth Development Study is an ongoing panel study designed to examine the causes and consequences of delinquency. The study has followed a sample of high-risk youth from 1988 through the present and has collected extensive information about their involvement in delinquency, violence, drug use, and other problem behaviors. Detailed information has also been collected on many of the basic causes and correlates of these behaviors. In 1999, we added an intergenerational component by studying the children of our original adolescent subjects.NCA/NCF

The Rochester Youth Development Study is an ongoing panel study designed to examine the causes and consequences of delinquency. The study has followed a sample of high-risk youth from 1988 through the present and has collected extensive information about their involvement in delinquency, violence, drug use, and other problem behaviors. Detailed information has also been collected on many of the basic causes and correlates of these behaviors. In 1999, an intergenerational component was added to study the children of the original adolescent subjects. During this project period, the focus will be on two core activities: data collection and dissemination of results. Data collection will continue to examine the intergenerational transmission of delinquency and the long-term consequences of involvement with the juvenile justice system. Interviews with the third generation of study participants will be conducted and official data will be collected to construct histories of juvenile justice system involvement for all sample members. In addition, new data will be analyzed, along with the data already collected as part of the Program of Research on the Causes and Correlates of Delinquency. A variety of reports and bulletins will be developed and submitted to OJJDP. NCA/NCF
