Synopsis: 
Risk factors for delinquency were evaluated in a teenage population in Trinidad and were found to include low academic achievement, living environment and family arrests. Self-esteem, punishment and family structure were not associated with delinquency in this population.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Various risk factors for juvenile delinquency have been identified but the extent to which they are applicable in Trinidad and Tobago has not been investigated. We conducted a case-control study comparing risk factors in delinquent and non-delinquent boys.
