Chapter: Using data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth, 1997 and 1979 Cohorts (NLSY97 and NLSY79, respectively), this study examined the frequency and types of antisocial activity among teenagers and compared findings from the 2 surveys in order to identify how youth behavior changed over 2 decades. The samples included 4,210 Ss (aged 12-18 yrs) from NLSY97 and 3,831 Ss (aged 15-23 yrs) from NLSY79. Cross-sectional gender and racial patterns were also explored. It was found that a nontrivial proportion of the youths interviewed committed various antisocial acts and that the patterns of participation varied by race and gender and type of activity. While there were some differences in racial patterns between NLSY79 and NLSY97, the overall findings were consistent. Indices reflecting the volume and the severity of antisocial activity, and the percentage of males who participated in antisocial activity are appended.

While the existing literature on self-employment offers a wealth of information on the characteristics of self-employed workers at a single point in time, to date few studies have taken workers' patterns of self-employment as their unit of analysis. Few studies describe how involvement in self-employment is changing for the new generation of workers. The purpose of this research is to provide policy-relevant analysis of the characteristics and career paths of those Americans who have chosen self-employment. Specifically, this study will (a) provide new empirical findings regarding the dynamics of self-employment that underpin individual entrepreneurship during early adult work life; and (b) document generational changes in self-employment patterns in early adult work life between two cohorts born in the second half of the 20th century.To address these research issues, this study utilizes two National Longitudinal Surveys of Youth, the 1979 Cohort (NLSY79) and the 1997 Cohort (NLSY97), which offer extensive information on economic activity, as well as data on personal and family backgrounds, and allow detailed longitudinal investigation of self-employment activities.
