OJJDP Girls Study Group Series, Bulletin, 20 page(s)
Provides a summary of the results of a review of more than 1,600 articles and book chapters from scientific literature on individual-level risk factors for delinquency and factors related to family, peers, schools, and communities. The review, which focused on girls ages 11 to 18, also examined whether these factors are gender neutral, gender specific, or gender sensitive.
