Crime, Delinquency & School Discipline (Young Women Cohort)
In 1968, a survey of the schools attended by respondents in the Young Women's and Young Men's cohorts was fielded. This survey included two questions on whether school records indicated that the respondent had been committed to or was on probation from a correctional institution. Small numbers of respondents from both cohorts were identified: Five Young Women respondents were committed and five were on probation; 19 Young Men respondents were committed and 13 were on probation.
The school survey also recorded whether respondents in the Young Women and Young Men cohorts had ever been expelled or suspended from school. Records of those schools surveyed indicated that 54 Young Women respondents (R00612.) and 205 respondents in the Young Men cohort (R01720.) had been expelled or suspended at some point in their schooling.
The scope of the Young Women's surveys is noninstitutionalized individuals; data on incarceration are not available.
Survey Instruments: These questions can be found in the 1968 School Survey and are located on the data file along with the other high school data collected during 1968.
