Abstract:

Many studies concluded that gender gap in delinquency is narrowing. These studies only rely on official data and often only violent crimes are analyzed. In this presentation, the primary objective is to describe trends of self-reported violence and delinquency against property for females and to compare them with males. We rely on data from the self-reported survey Monitoring the Future between 1976 and 2006. Regression analyses highlight two important facts: 1- there has been no major change in female delinquency for the last thirty years; 2- between 1976 and 1989, male and female delinquency evolve in the same way and between 1990 and 2006, gender gap narrows slightly, mainly because of a small number of very active violent females who are growing up and an inverse or stable trend for males. Upcoming researches should investigate what explain variations between genders in delinquency trends and they should consider the study of other deviant behaviours.
