Description

Research among adolescents has shown that health-compromising behaviors such as HIV risk, substance use, and violence tend co-occur. Neighborhood environment may predispose adolescents to HIV risk as well as other externalizing behaviors. The following scale has been used with early adolescents and has a high internal consistency (KR20=.85: Crum et al., 1996).
