Abstract

This paper examines hypotheses derived from "differential identification." Specifically, the degree of delinquency involvement of an individual is compared with that of those individuals with whom he identifies--whether positively or negatively. The degree of delinquency involvement was measured by a self-reported delinquency scale. Results suggest similar delinquency involvement among close friends.
