This study assessed how schools, neighborhoods, nuclear families, and friendship groups jointly contribute to positive change during early adolescence. Analyses showed that the four context indices modestly intercorrelated at the individual student level, but clustered more tightly at the school and neighborhood levels. Joint influence of all four contexts was cumulatively large and generally additive in form, suggesting that both theory and interventions for change should be explicitly pan-contextual. (Author/KB)
