Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2004, $350,000)

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
