AbstractEvidence supporting the relationship between social institutions and delinquency is strong and substantial. Yet, much of this research excludes measures of religiosity on delinquency and future adult criminality. This research seeks to expand the literature by examining the direct and indirect relationships between law breaking and the institutions of family, school, education, and religion. Other variables included in this study are parental education and demographics. Research subjects are followed over all four waves of the Add Health data set.
