The rates for white males rose after 1975, and those of black males after 1977, following a period of significant decrease from 1973 to 1977. Laub and McDermott also discovered considerable differences in rates for specific personal offenses: rape, robbery, aggravated assault, simple assault, and personal larceny. The highest rates for both black and white girls and for white boys were for the simple assault category; the highest rate for black males was for the robbery category; and the lowest rate was for the personal larceny category.

A study in the Netherlands found similar rates of shoplifting among girls and boys (Weerman and Bijleveld, 2007). Another European study found that males were more likely to shoplift than girls. A study of college students also found that males were more likely than females to shoplift (Zauberman, 2010).
