Provides an overview of the administration and key findings of the Second International Self-Report Survey conducted in Venezuela in 2006. The sample comprised 2,395 secondary school students selected in the cities of Caracas and Mérida and in three small towns.In general, Venezuelan secondary school students appear to have quite low levels of delinquency, especially serious delinquency, or at least a low disposition to report such behaviours in a survey. While bivariate analysis identifies many significant variables, which describe adolescents’ interactions with peers, the nature of peer group activity, the perceptions of crime and deviance in the school or neighborhood, and the experience of victimization, multivariate analysis reveals that it is the deviant nature of peer and peer group activity, together with victimization, which (along with gender and socioeconomic level) emerge as the significant predictors of delinquent behaviour.
