Journal of Early Adolescence, v15 n4 p476-89 Nov 1995
Investigated how peer acceptance and friendship were related to self-esteem in adolescents. Ninth-grade students (n=542) were classified by sociometric group and presence or absence of reciprocal friendships. Results indicate no significant difference in self-esteem scores across sociometric groups. Subjects with one friend had higher self-esteem than subjects with no friend. (JBJ)
