This study examined whether family risk factors predicted attrition in a prevention research project that incorporated procedures to increase retention in assessment and intervention activities.
Analyses used data from 667 rural families collected over 4 waves and consisted of (a) young adolescent and parent reports of internalizing and extemalizing problems, (b) observer ratings of distress in parent-child interactions, and (c) family socioeconomic status (SES).
Analyses failed to identify any risk factors as significant predictors of intervention participation.
Only SES was found to be significant as a predictor of assessment attrition.
This SES result appeared to reflect an association between lower educational attainment and an increased likelihood of attrition.
