Abstract

The existing approaches to the study of crowds tend to focus attention on the individual level of behavior and to neglect group-level behavior. Data collected on persons celebrating a football victory indicate that the majority of participants were with one or more friends; that is, they were in groups. These data provide a basis for suggesting that group-level phenomena be given greater prominence in the conceptualization of crowd behavior.
