  • 1. Delinquent Boys at Increased Risk of Premature Death and Disability by Middle Age By Abby Johnson, Angel Vaughn, and Daniele Marcato 
  • 2. What is the study?
      • A new study from the UK suggests that boys who express more antisocial behavior when they were younger (such as skip school or other delinquent acts) or had parental factors (such as little parental supervision, being separated from a parent, or having a convicted parent) affects various health outcomes up to 40 years later
          • such as death or disability
  • 3. Delinquent Boys at Increased Rick of Premature Death and Disability by Middle Age
      • Among boys who participated in antisocial behavior at age 10 (Ex. skipping school regularly or being labeled as a trouble maker or dishonest by parents and teachers) and/or had been convicted of a crime by age 18 had died or become disabled by age 48
          • 16.3%
            • 1 in 6
      • This data was compared to boys of the same class and neighborhood in London who were not offenders
          • 2.6%
            • 1 in 40
    •     
  • 4. Delinquent Boys at Increased Rick of Premature Death and Disability by Middle Age
      • Another study starting in 1961 followed 411 boys at age 8 or 9
        • They investigated the influences on evolution and long term consequence of childhood delinquency 
          • Interviewed children, parents, teachers and reviewed criminal records
        • Follow up investigations at ages 16-18, 27-32 and 43-48 were performed
        • By the time of the latest investigation, 389 men still remained in the study
          • 17 men had died by the age of 48
          • 17 of the remaining men were disabled
  • 5. Odds Ratios
      • Antisocial behavior at age 10 leading to premature death or disability by age 48: 
            • 3.5
      • Boys who had been convicted of a crime between ages 10 and 18:
            • 3.0
      • Those convicted between the ages of 10 and 40:
            • 3.5
      • Those at age 10 with little parental supervision, a convicted parent, or were separated from a parent:
            • 3.2
      •   Low self control at age 18:
            • 2.1
      • At age 32 criminal activity not picked up by the police (burglary, shoplifting, car theft, violence, and vandalism
            • 4.3 
  • 6. Delinquent Boys at Increased Rick of Premature Death and Disability by Middle Age
      • This data suggests that things that happen in the family between ages 8-10 can effect things later in life
        • Such as...
          • Premature death
          • Disability
          • Chronic illnesses
            • Such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, and respiratory disease
  • 7. Delinquent Boys at Increased Rick of Premature Death and Disability by Middle Age
      • There is no identified reason why this behavior early on can lead to premature death and disability by middle age
        • Lack of self control in childhood and adolescents was an underlying theme. It could be that the antisocial life style and stress from dealing with problems that could of been avoided takes its toll
          • Fits with biological evidence of chronic stress and illness
