Delinquents and nondelinquents in the Puerto Rican slum culture by Franco Ferracuti( Book )

10 editions published in 1975 in English and Undetermined and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report narrates the attempt carried out in Puerto Rico to study the differential characteristics of juvenile delinquency by way of an exhaustive and meticulous research into the living conditions, family history, social, economic, educational circumstances, and physiological and psychological variables of 101 matched pairs of delinquent and non-delinquent boys, ages 11 to 17, immersed in the slum culture of metropolitan San Juan. The group was observed over a period of five years, 1960 to 1965 inclusive. The data yielded by the several batteries of instruments used -- medical neurological, encephalographic, and psychological -- were analyzed in two principal ways: by univariate and multivariate techniques. Firstly, the two groups were compared on every variable in a straightforward chi-square analysis. Secondly, after eliminating all but 184 variables, each of the 101 delinquents was compared with his control across each variable in a sign test analysis. Thirdly, all 184 items were subjected to a factor analysis, and seven separate clusters of variables emerged accounting for more than a third of the total variance. Lastly, using the highly sophisticated step wise discriminant function analysis approach, the identification of delinquents and non-delinquents in terms of small sub-sets of variables was compared with their actual status.
