Previous studies have been made by sociologists to find the basic causes of delinquency. Some of the causes found were: a lack of proper recreational facilities, broken homes, and low economic status. With these factors being given as underlying causes of delinquency, it is evident that many non-delinquents have made progress under similiar conditions.

The writer has compared the delinquent and nondelinquent on the basis of: (1) familial, (2) economic, (3) educational, and (4) institutional characteristics in order to discover the extent to which these groups differ in these characteristics. A solution to this problem is yet to be sought.
