An Aid-4 Analysis of Maternal Antecedents to Locus of Control - Internal (LoC-l) at Age 60 Months.
Spaner, Steven D.; Jordan, Thomas E.
This study reports an attempt to explore within a heterogeneous population the pattern of influence which selected maternal traits exert on internal locus of control at age 5 years. Information on the relevant variables was retrieved from the computer-based data bank of the St. Louis Baby Study. The maternal traits used for prediction included the mother's age, a measure of authoritarianism, race, IQ, level of education, a measure of anxiety, and a measure of the stimulation value of the home. Locus of control scores were available for the 77 children involved. A special multiple regression analysis (Automatic Interaction Detector, AID) was used. A brief discussion of the substantive results is followed by an extended discussion of the AID analysis. (ST)
