This research is performed within the International Comparative Self-Report Delinquency Study (ISRD). Many European Countries participate therein: they survey behaviors of graduate and post-graduate scholars since more than twenty years (ISRD1 in 1992, ISRD2 in 2006, ISRD3 in 2013). The main purpose is evaluating spreading and characters of deviant and criminal behaviors analyzing a consistent and adequate sample of teenagers which attend different schools and classes. As to the Naples study, the student sample was enlarged: ISRD3 form, indeed, provides in the sample the presence of 2nd and 3rd middle school and 1st secondary school classes; in Naples, the classes are four: 2nd and 3rd middle school and 1st and 2nd secondary school (as the ISRD2 in 2006). The aim is comparing data of ISRD2 to those of ISRD3 for a more exact setting up of the sample. Scholars of these classes, besides, are particularly fit for the research since deviant behaviors are especially carried on within this age, even if they are not all criminal. We are here stating the first outcomes of data processing. After analyzing the social and registry-office data of the sample, including biographic and family description, surveying the connection with residence place and school, the free time use, the discovery of some tendency to deviant behaviors, we focused attention to some specific deviant and unlawful behaviors, even in connection with some social and registry-office data.
