Bowen, Gary L.; Chapman, Mimi V.
Journal of Family Issues, v17 n5 p641-66 Sep 1996
Examines the relative contribution of measures of objective and subjective neighborhood danger and measures of social support from neighbors, teachers, parents, and friends. Findings suggest that adolescents' adaptation is influenced more by the availability of social support, especially from parents, than from their reports and perceptions of neighborhood danger. (RJM)
