This proposed study used a pre-existing data set, which is a longitudinal study of children born between 1959 to 1962. The sample consists of 987 "high risk" black children whose mothers were participating in the Collaborative Perinatal Project at the Pennsylvania Hospital in Philadelphia. Findings demonstrate that family size is more important in predicting delinquency than previously thought.
