Assessed whether risk factors for youth violence measured at 10 years influenced later violence directly or indirectly through predictors measured at 14 years. Found that many childhood risks had strong and persistent effects on later violence. Mediation effects were noted for most factors. School and peer predictors at 14 years were the strongest mediators of early risk factors. (Author/KB)
