The specific answer includes the four factors identified as (1) Activities occurring within the juvenile justice system itself, (2) socioeconomic conditions, (3) educational system inadequacies, and (4) family dynamics. More complete responses will expand on these to explain that (1) selection bias may mean that minority youth are more closely scrutinized by the system, (2) poor socioeconomic conditions can limit job opportunities and restrict social support services, (3) delinquent behavior may be encouraged by the absence of (or failure by minority youth to participate in) school programs, and (4) single-parent homes may bring economic stress and limited parental supervision.
