Where have all the young offenders gone?

In AQMeN research briefing 4: Where have all the young offenders gone? Ben Matthews explores why the crime drop that has happened in Scotland since the early 1990s is not evenly distributed among offenders.

There has been a substantial decline in the rate of convictions of people aged 25 or under, in particular young men, whereas, by contrast, rates of convictions for people over 26 have been mostly stable.
