Flanagan, Constance A.; Tucker, Corinna Jenkins
Developmental Psychology, v35 n5 p1198-1209 Sep 1999
Examined relationships between adolescents' explanations for unemployment, poverty, and homelessness, and their beliefs about opportunity, reports of family values, and personal aspirations. Found that likelihood of attributing problems to societal causes was positively related to maternal education and average household income in adolescent's school district. Also found age and sex differences in explanations for unemployment. (Author/KB)
