AbstractHaving delinquent peers is a risk factor for delinquency. Little research has been conducted that sheds light on the importance of sustained peer group relationships in understanding unlawful conduct. Peer relationships are measured at two points in time: during adolescence and early adulthood. This study explores the extent to which peer group relationships are related to unlawful behavior over the life course. The National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health (Add Health) dataset is used to conduct this study.
