Introduction: Some Thoughts about Studying the Influence of Peers on Children and Adolescents.
Urberg, Kathryn A.
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v45 n1 p1-12 Jan 1999

This introduction provides an overview of some of the methodological complications involved in studying peer influence, and discusses a new model for conceptualizing peer influence. (Author/SD)
