Presents selected findings from the Rochester Youth Development Study, a longitudinal study of 1,000 urban adolescents and 1 of 3 coordinated projects supported by OJJDP through its Program of Research on the Causes and Correlates of Delinquency. The Rochester study is investigating the causes and consequences of adolescent delinquency and drug use by following a sample of high-risk urban adolescents from their early teenage years through their early adult years. The study examined family influences on delinquency, school factors, peer influence on behavior, gang membership and delinquency, structural position, youth involvement with guns, and consequences of delinquent behavior.
