Examined the validity of eight socioeconomic status measures as reported by adolescents and compared to information from their mothers. Found relatively high agreement between adolescents and mothers, supporting criterion validity. Found that most adolescent-reported measures varied systematically and in the expected direction with mothers' income and that adolescent health measures also related to socioeconomic data in the predicted way.(DLH)
