Abstract [en]

Examined whether adult mortality risk was related to adolescent behavioral problems, substance abuse, and adverse home upbringing conditions, and whether Ss with an adult criminal conviction were over-represented among those who died prematurely. 7,577 Swedish males (aged 18 yrs), about to undertake compulsory military service in 1969–70, responded to questions about their family background and antisocial behavior. They were followed up in registers of mortality, criminality, and alcohol and drug abuse, up to the age of 33 yrs. Results show that early contact with the police, truancy and school misconduct, home upbringing variables, divorce, and parental nervous disorders were significant predictors of later premature mortality. Higher likelihood of mortality among offenders may be attributed largely to the existence of a small group of alcohol and/or drug abusers who run a high risk of premature death.
