Cheung, Yuet W.
Journal of Youth and Adolescence, v26 n5 p569-96 Oct 1997
Results from a self-report study of 1,139 Hong Kong secondary school students show that an equation containing peers' deviant behavior, peers' disapproval of deviant behavior, frequency of media exposure, preference for violent and obscene content, imitation of media characters, parents' deviant behavior, and teachers' negative evaluation explained the greatest amount of variance of adolescent deviant behavior.
