Preventing Substance Abuse among African American Children and Youth: Race Differences in Risk Factor Exposure and Vulnerability.
Wallace, John M., Jr.; Muroff, Jordana R.
Journal of Primary Prevention, v22 n3 p235-61 Spr 2002
Reviews risk factors for adolescent and young adult substance use as a framework for examining race differences in exposure and/or vulnerability. Concludes that the assumption that African American and white youth are equally exposed and vulnerable to the same risk factors is incorrect. Finds that youth differed significantly in their exposure to more than half of the 55 risk factors. (Contains 60 references and 2 tables.) (GCP)
