Deviant Peers and Deviant Behavior: Further Elaboration of a Model

Abstract

In an earlier analysis we estimated a model in which later deviance was explained by the direct positive effects of disposition to deviance and early deviance, the direct negative effect of self-rejection, and the indirect positive effects of self-rejection and early deviance. This analysis estimates and elaborated model which specifies, in addition to the above effects, the direct effect of association with deviant peers on later deviance. Deviant peer association mediates the influence of early deviance, self-rejection, and disposition to deviance upon later deviance. The model is estimated using the LISREL VI program for analysis of linear structural relationships among latent constructs in a three-wave panel data set.
