Chapter XIV
OFFENDERS WHO SUCCEEDED DURING EXTRAMURAL TREATMENT AND THOSE WHO FAILED

AS the first in our series of analyses of conduct types, a comparison is made between the former juvenile delinquents who succeeded during extramural supervision and those who failed there- under, to see whether and how they may be differentiated. In order to sharpen this comparison, we are omitting a group of offenders who did not always behave satisfactorily during extramural treatment, and are confining our attention strictly to those who succeeded during all the extramural treatments to which they were subjected (160 offenders) and those who failed during all such experiences (428 offenders).1 In making prediction tables for response to different forms of peno-correctional treatment we shall, of course, take this third group into account.2 An examination of their characteristics indicates that they more nearly resembled those who always succeeded; they apparently had the capacity to succeed during extramural treatment but did not always do so, perhaps because of the nature of some specific treatment or because, as we have noted in a previous chapter, their adjustment was delayed to later years.


RESEMBLANCES

It is evident that the factors of resemblance between the offenders who always succeeded and those who always failed during periods of extramural treatment, since they are neutral factors, cannot be the ones that contributed to their varying responses. But it is well

In this chapter as well as in any others in which comparisons are made between two series of cases of unequal numbers, the significance of the differences was estimated by relating the size of the differences to their probable errors. The difference was considered significant if it was three or more times the probable error.
