The measure is a composite scale. One is a four-item property offending
scale: "How often in the past 12 months did you ..." Response options:
0-never; 1-once or twice; 2-three or four times; 3-five or more times. The
other scale is a five-item violent offending scale with the same format. I
have been wary to use a count regression procedure because there is
nothing in the statistics literature that mentions, one way or the other,
using negative binomial regression for this type of data. However, there
are several prominent articles (within the criminological literature) that
do this. As a mere grad student, I am a bit confused.
