Abstract:

The purpose of the current study is to test a model from social control theory among Latino and White adolescents. Data were collected as part of the Community-Based Profile of Michigan Youth study, with surveys administered to over 16,000 students in the 6th – 12th grades from 36 communities. The current sample includes 11,467 high school students (Latino, n = 440; White, n = 11,027). Five latent scales were constructed: ties and affection, success orientation, participation in conventional activities, respect for the law, and delinquency. Structural equation modeling was used to test for overall model fit for both groups, and to test for similarities and differences in the path model across groups. Analyses revealed that the four-factor model of social control helps to predict delinquency for both Latino and White adolescents. Differences in path coefficients will be discussed regarding model fit and implications for social control theory.
