King, Valarie; Elder, Glen H., Jr.; Whitbeck, Les B.
Journal of Research on Adolescence, v7 n4 p431-56 1997
Studied religious development in 365 adolescents from white, two-parent families participating in the Iowa Youth and Families Project. Found that farm youth had stronger ties to religious institutions and expressed stronger commitments to religious values than nonfarm youth. The correlates of religious change and continuity indicate that social identities and qualities of the parent-child relationship were important influences. (Author)
