Delinquency, Social Institutions, and Capital Accumulation
AbstractThis paper models the link between teenage delinquency rates and underlying measures of human and social capital and tests its predictions on a large Montreal database. The model allows teenagers to choose among a number of competing time uses, and the empirical work uses binary and ordered choice models to test the theoretical predictions of the effects of participation in various social institutions.
