Examining Religion as a Preventative Factor

Group: Commission on Criminal and Juvenile Justice

Description

Attempts to define religion attempt to include morals and values, cultural context, and individual determining factors. Defining delinquency is often just as difficult. Researchers must decide whether deviant behavior must be misdemeanors and felonies, drug use, etc. Because of differing definitions, studies report differing results. Consequently, social science has yet to make a definitive statement regarding the connection between religion and delinquency.
