Mixtures of Participation and Frequency during Criminal Careers over the Life Span, Part II

Abstract:

Building upon our prior work (Petras, Nieuwbeerta, & Piquero, 2010) as well as our ASC presentation in 2009, we continue our efforts to investigate the degree of heterogeneity in the development of participation and frequency in offending. The theoretical backdrop for this work is the famous Gottfredson and Hirschi versus Blumstein debate where the key point of contention lied in the interpretation of the age-crime curve, in particular regarding heterogeneity in the two aspects of a criminal career (i.e., participation and frequency). Using data from the Criminal Career and Life Course Study - including information on criminal convictions over 60 years of almost 5,000 persons convicted in the Netherlands - and applying a Two-Part Growth Model that explicitly distinguishes between participation and frequency, we now explore the extent to which different subpopulations are present in the development of participation and/or frequency. According to Gottfredson & Hirschi, we would expect to find different developments in frequency, but not in participation, given a sample of convicted individuals. According to a life-course perspective, we would expect to find heterogeneity in both participation and frequency.
