Dukes, Richard L.; Stein, Judith A.
Youth & Society, v32 n3 p337-59 Mar 2001
Tested control theory using protective effects of personal and social assets and risk effects of personal deficits on deviant behaviors of drug use, delinquency, truancy, and weapons possession. Analyzed data from students in grades 6-12 using structural equations modeling. Second order factors of assets and deficits explained deviant behavior. Findings were consistent for subgroups of middle and high school students. (SM)
