Adolescent Peers and Delinquency Specific Friends and Specific Offenses

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The type and quality of and adolescent's friendships can vary across many dimensions with each friendship having its own unique context, features, and norms. The primary purpose of this study will be to use the Add Health social network data to explore how different definitions of the term 'friend' impact the adolescent/peer delinquency association. The term friend(s) is defined as an adolescent's nominated egocentric friendship group, the first nominated friend (i.e. the best friend), and the rest of the friendship group excluding the best friend. First, we assess the relationship between an adolescent's delinquency and that of the three specified definitions of the term friend(s). Second, our analysis tests the hypothesis that the delinquency of an adolescent's best friend and the rest of the group each have a unique and significant association with his or her delinquency. Lastly, we examine if the effect of the best friend's delinquency depends upon its similarity to the delinquency of the rest of the friendship group. Each of these questions will be explored across three delinquency definitions: a general delinquency index, smoking, and fighting.
