"Study: 'Antisocial' children more likely to end up chronically unemployed and in poverty" - WDIV Detroit. 08/08/2017.

Using longitudinal data from Finland that tracked individuals from ages 8 to 50, Jukka Savolainen and colleagues found that 'antisocial' behavior in childhood was a strong independent indicator of nonparticipation in the workforce by age 50. Savolainen says that the key contribution of this work is "to document the noncognitive, or antisocial behavior pathway, through these life stages as an influential cause of persistent poverty and socioeconomic disadvantage."
