R0GNG10: R0 Gang: Did you join a gang while at the release facility/program

Did you join a gang while at the release facility/program?

MEASURE: Gang Involvement

This measure includes a series of questions to assess the youth's gang involvement 
both within the institution/program and prior to coming to placement. The questions
are taken mainly from Thornberry, Lizotte, Krohn, Farnworth, and Jang, (1994) and
Elliott (1990). If gang involvement prior to coming to placement is endorsed, 
additional items explore the presence and the subject's continued participation of
that gang within the institution/program.
