Oregon Youth Study Wave 1, 1984-1985 Version 1

DOI

The original Oregon Youth Study began 1983. The goal was to examine the etiology of antisocial behaviors in boys, with a view to designing preventive interventions within the context of the family and the school. This longitudinal study has expanded over the past few decades into an intergenerational study, retaining the original young men and including their partners and children. Demographic variables include race, religion, annual household income, and the participants' parents' employment statuses.

The goal of this study was to examine the etiology of antisocial behaviors in boys, with a view to designing preventive interventions within the context of the family and the school.

Boys and their families were recruited into the OYS by inviting the entire fourth grade (ages 9-10 years) of boys from schools in neighborhoods with a higher-than-usual incidence of delinquency within the medium-sized Pacific Northwestern city to participate. The latter was assessed by analyzing the home addresses of youth committing delinquent acts compared with the school-boundary areas. Thus, the boys were at elevated risk for delinquency due to neighborhood characteristics (in a medium-sized city) but were not necessarily showing conduct problems at the time of recruitment.

The data includes variables about participants' and their parents' moods, interviewer observations, families' activities, families' health history, participants' school records, and parents' substance use. Demographic variables include race, religion, annual household income, and the participants' parents' employment statuses.
