Tyson, G. A.; Hubert, Carol J.
Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology, v33 n5 p459-63 Sep 2002
Examined lay explanations for juvenile delinquency given by Australian adolescents from either collectivist (Asian) or individualist (Australian) cultural backgrounds. Student surveys indicated that, after controlling for socioeconomic and demographic variables, there were small differences between the groups, with individualistic teens tending to emphasize more personal explanations.
