(NCJ 181201) April 2000
OJJDP Serious and Violent Juvenile Offending Series, Bulletin, 8 page(s)
Lipsey, M. W., Wilson, D. B., Cothern, L.
 
Presents the results of a meta-analysis (a systematic synthesis of quantitative research results) that posed two questions: (1) Can intervention programs reduce recidivism rates among serious delinquents? and (2) If so, what types of programs are most effective? This Bulletin describes the procedures used to select studies for the meta-analysis, presents the methods of analysis used to answer the above questions, and then discusses effective interventions for noninstitutionalized and institutionalized juvenile offenders.
