Causes and Correlates Project Data Released

The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) has released data for secondary analysis from its Program of Research on the Causes and Correlates of Delinquency. OJJDP launched the Causes and Correlates project in 1986 to learn more about the root causes of juvenile delinquency and other problem behaviors. Three coordinated longitudinal studies constitute the program: Denver Youth Survey, Pittsburgh Youth Study, and Rochester Youth Development Study. In each project, researchers conducted face-to-face interviews with at-risk youth. In addition, the data collection involved interviews with the primary caretaker and, in two sites, school teachers. Researchers also collected administrative data from official agencies, including police, schools, and social services.
