Aggression and fighting behavior among African-American adolescents : individual and family factors.
This study examined the extent to which individual and family factors are associated with aggression and fighting behavior among African-American middle school adolescents.
Four hundred thirty-six African-American boys and girls from two middle schools in a predominantly low-income North Carolina school system were surveyed and their school records examined.
Information was collected concerning students' aggression levels, school fighting behavior, school suspensions for fighting, attitudes toward violence, perceptions of their families' attitudes towards violence, weapon-carrying behavior, and sociodemographics.
