Deviant Youth Groups in 30 Countries: Results from the Second International Self-Report Delinquency Study

Abstract:

In this study, we explored the link between Deviant Youth Group membership and antisocial behaviour through a large student survey (the International Self-Reported Delinquency Survey - ISRD-2 -) conducted by means of the same questionnaire in 62 cities in 30 countries. The sample (N=40,678) was made up of 7th-, 8th- and 9th-grade students, both boys and girls, attending different types of schools. The definition of Deviant Youth Group that we used was the one drawn up by the Eurogang network: “Any durable, street-oriented youth group whose own identity includes involvement in illegal activity”. About 4.4% of youths were considered DYG members according to this definition, with prevalence rates differing markedly among different countries, from less than 1% to more than 16%. In general, DYG membership implied a higher prevalence of delinquency, violence and alcohol and drug use. Differences between DYG members and non-members were greater with regard to more serious antisocial behaviour. Although the prevalence of DYG membership varies in different countries, the association between DYG membership and antisocial behaviour is quite similar in the different national contexts.
