Victims. (Bulletin Reports).

Juvenile Delinquency and Serious Injury Victimization (NCJ 188676) draws on data from two studies (the Denver Youth Survey and the Pittsburgh Youth Study) by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) to explore the interrelationship between delinquency and victimization. This bulletin, part of OJJDP's Youth Development Series, focuses on victims of violence who sustained serious injuries as a result of the victimization. Being victimized may lead to victimizing others. The studies found that many victims were prone to engage in illegal activities, associate with delinquent peers, victimize other delinquents, and avoid legal recourse in resolving conflicts. A clearer understanding of the patterns and predictors of victimization offers the potential for increased effectiveness in designing and implementing strategies to reduce both victimization and offending.
