In a study comparing frequencies of comic book reading of 235 delinquents aged 10–17 vs. a matched group of nondelinquents, significant critical ratios were found indicating "that the delinquent and nondelinquent groups… read about the same number of 'harmless' comic books, but delinquents read many more 'questionable' and 'harmful' comics…" Delinquents also are shown to read a significantly greater number of comic books in general.
