Ten delinquency prevention studies are reviewed that incorporated rigorous evaluative procedures (specifically the classic experimental design) for assessing programmatic outcomes. Following an introduction, the evaluation mechanisms built into each project are described, since they were used for determination of the effectiveness of the preventive services. The format used for the project reviews is then outlined: background (how and why the experiment was undertaken), theoretical orientations of service given, research design, treatment providers, treatment population, dimensions of treatment (amount of contact time, treatment plan, involvement of experimental subjects), findings, and recommendations. The ten studies reviewed are Cambridge-Somerville Youth Study, Massachusetts; New York City Youth Board, Validation Study of the Glueck Prediction Table; Minimum Benefits Project, Washington, D.C.; Midcity Project: Boston, Massachusetts; Youth Consultation Service Project, New York, New York; Chicago Youth Development Project, Illinois; Seattle Atlantic Street Center Experiment, Washington; Youth Development Program, Columbus, Ohio; Opportunities for Youth Project, Seattle, Washington; Wincroft Youth Project, Manchester, England. A general discussion uses the same outline/format topics to consider the experiments as a whole. The generalized finding is made that no study produced positive effects, that is, the delinquency prevention services were no more effective than an absence of services. (YLB)
