On the Measurement of Friend Behavior in Research on Friend Influence and Selection: Findings from Longitudinal Studies of Adolescent Smoking and Drinking.
Bauman, Karl E.; Fisher, Lynn A.
Journal of Youth and Adolescence, v15 n4 p345-53 Aug 1986
Research on adolescent behavior described in this paper departs from traditional research by including friend reports of friend behavior so that results based on the different sources for measuring friend behavior can be compared. Findings are discussed in the context of theoretical and methodological considerations of peer influence and selection. (Author/LMO)
