Abstract

Disorganized neighborhoods are associated with high levels of violence which can impact resident’s relationships and delinquency. Using self-report surveys from students in a juvenile delinquency course at South Dakota State University and a juvenile justice course at California State University, San Bernardino, this project will compare neighborhood disorganization and friend influence across delinquent behavior. It is expected that there will be a high correlation between disorganized neighborhoods and self-reported delinquency.
