In the reference cited above, we reported on similarities and differences be- tween juvenile sexual offenders (JSOs) and nonsexual offending delinquent peers (non-JSOs) on the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory—Adolescent Version (MMPI-A). Our initial analyses indicated no statistically significant dif- ference in scores between experimental groups on any of the validity or clinical scales of the MMPI-A. However, inspection of data revealed that the mean score on Scale 4 (Psychopathic Deviant) fell above the cut off for clinical elevation for the non-JSO group but in the nonclinical range for the JSO group. Therefore, we created a dichotomous variable of “elevated” versus “not-elevated” on Scale 4. In our original article, we reported that chi-square analysis indicated that a signifi- cantly greater number of participants in the non-JSO group scored in the clinically significant range than those in the JSO.
