An analysis of the status offender legislation in all 50
states and the District of Columbia yielded seven states as the purest
possible deterrence states, treatment states, and normalization states.
A census of youth service agencies was then conducted in large cities
of the seven states: Anchorage, Alaska, Wilmington, Delaware, Boise,
Idaho, Portland, Maine, Baltimore, Maryland, Flint, Michigan, and
Manchester, New Hampshire. That census yielded 1,527 agencies, and
exclusion criteria combined with nonresponses reduced the final number
to 571 appropriate agencies, of which 245 reported providing services
during 1987 to at least some youths engaged in status conduct. Youth
interviews were limited to the cities of Boise, Manchester, and
self-enumerated questionnaires and personal interviews
Extent of Processing: ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of
disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major
statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to
these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection:
Performed recodes and/or calculated derived variables.
Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.
