Locus of Peer Influence: Social Crowd and Best Friend.
Urberg, Kathryn A.
Journal of Youth and Adolescence, v21 n4 p439-50 Aug 1992
The relative influence of best friends and social crowds of 324 older adolescents (eleventh graders) on cigarette smoking was examined to determine influences as a function of sex, conformity, and friendship mutuality. Best friends, rather than social crowd, appeared to be the major influence in this group. (SLD)
