Journal of Youth and Adolescence, v29 n2 p163-82 Apr 2000
Developed and validated short measures of peer pressure, peer conformity, and popularity with 148 adolescent Canadian boys and girls in grades 11 to 13. Results show all constructed measures to be internally consistent. Peer pressure and peer conformity were stronger predictors of risk behavior than measures assessing popularity, general conformity, or dysphoria. (SLD)
