  • Juvenile delinquency has decreased sharply over the past 20 years, according to a study from Malmö University.
  • The main explanation is that today's youth stay at home to a greater extent in the evening, and avoid risky environments.
  • Children are also more strongly monitored by their parents through the use of mobile phones, according to Professor Robert Svensson, who is behind the study.
