The Influence of Predictors on Adolescent Drug Use: An Examination of Individual Effects.
Youth & Society, v28 n2 p215-35 Dec 1996
Findings of t-tests on results from 1,247 adolescents in South Carolina indicate that, without adjustment, whites were higher than blacks on socioeconomic status, grade point average, and attitudes favoring drug use. Blacks were higher on positive peer influence, commitment to education, self-efficacy expectations, and reported conduct disorder variables. (SLD)
