Actuarial Prediction of Institutional Maladjustment in Severe Male Juvenile Offenders

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The current study examined the contribution of multiple well-established risk variables to the prediction of institutional maladjustment. A total sample of 489 severe male juvenile offenders was divided into separate derivation and validation sub-samples for the development of actuarial models. Regression analyses revealed that age of first adjudication, reading achievement, and impulsivity uniquely contributed to the prediction of institutional maladjustment. The actuarial models performed similarly across derivation and validation samples. However, cut-scores derived for the models were particularly prone to false positives. Implications of the current findings for juvenile risk assessment and future actuarial modeling efforts are discussed.
