Bukowski, William M.; Newcomb, Andrew F.
Developmental Psychology, v20 n5 p941-52 Sep 1984
Considerable stability was observed on measures of acceptance, rejection, preference, and impact in a one-year longitudinal study of sociometric stability and friendship choice consistency in an early-adolescent peer group. Findings provided new information about patterns of stability in early adolescent peer groups and revealed the need for assessing qualitative aspects of friendship relations. (Author/RH)
