  1. Patterns of psychopathology among urban poor children : Comorbidity and agression effects.

    Article - En anglais

    A sample of 3,647 children from Grades 1-6 of inner-city and other urban poor communities and diverse ethnic groups were evaluated for co-occurrence of clinical-level scores on syndrome scales of the Teacher Report Form of the Child Behavior Checklist.

    Besides examining the relative rate of co-occurring syndromes, the contribution of residence location, ethnicity, age, and gender to such patterns were examined.

    Latent class analyses were applied to determine the makeup of basic patterns of co-occurring syndromes.

    Results suggest that comorbidity and the type of comorbidity pattern are related to residence.

    Gender and ethnicity are also related to pattern.

    Aggression seems to be a central aspect of the type of co-occurring patterns found among urban poor children.

    Its presence relates to poorer functioning, particularly in conjunction with internalizing syndromes.
