Self Report of Offending

Title

Self Report of Offending

Description

The Self Report of Offending was a self-report questionnaire focused on a participant's involvement in antisocial behavior and the legal consequences of that behavior. It was adapted from the Self-Report of Delinquency Questionnaire and the Self-Report of Antisocial Behavior Questionnaire. Information about lifetime and past-year involvement in delinquent and criminal behaviors (including theft, assault, and public disorder) was obtained with follow-up prompts designed to obtain information about age of onset and date of recent involvement. Other factors such as police involvement or solitary versus group offending were included. Information regarding the participant's involvement with the police and court system was also obtained.

WAVE 1: The Self Report of Offending (PDF 3.6MG) was administered to Cohorts 9, 12, 15, and 18.

WAVE 2: The Self Report of Offending (PDF 6.4MG) was administered to Cohorts 9, 12, 15, and 18.

WAVE 3: The Self Report of Offending (PDF 7MG) was administered to Cohorts 6, 9, 12, 15, and 18.
