Abstract

Hirschi's social control theory proposes that delinquents fail to form or maintain a bond to society consisting of attachment, commitment, involvement, and belief. Using data from the Youth in Transition Study, the present report develops and tests multivariate models of social control theory which simultaneously consider how the four bond elements operate in relation to delinquency. Factor analysis and communality analysis examine the uniqueness of the four bond elements, and revised and additional measures are suggested. Background factors-measures of social class and ability-are added to the model, and a revised formulation of social control is suggested.
