Abstract

The purpose of this study was to explore the impact of attachment, life strains and association with deviant peers on frequency of juvenile delinquency by using the zero-inflated negative binomial (ZINB) regression model with R. The graphical tool “rootogram” was utilized for the goodness-of-fit visualization of the ZINB model. Research participants were 947 students in Tainan, Taiwan. The results were as follows: (1) life strains and association with deviant peers were significantly associated with the occurrence of delinquency; (2) attachment and association with deviant peers were significant predictors for the magnitude of delinquency; (3) ZINB outperformed negative binomial model for count data analysis with excessive number of responses of zero, and with over-dispersed distribution.
