Life on the Streets: The Victimization of Runaway and Homeless Adolescents.
Whitbeck, Les B.; Simons, Ronald L.
Youth and Society, v22 n1 p108-25 Sep 1990
Examines the victimization of runaways using a sample of 84 adolescents in a midwestern city of about 250,000 people. Finds that these youth, like runaways in larger cities, are doubly victimized by abusive family situations and by life on the streets. Sex differences in the processes that influence victimization are discussed. (FMW)
