Abstract

The change and stability of antisocial behavior during adolescence has triggered interest in a number of social scientific disciplines. This article longitudinally examines pathways of antisocial behavior among predominantly African American adolescents residing in inner-city, poor neighborhoods. Data were collected from 354 youth (ages 12 through 15) in an ongoing longitudinal study designed to identify the life-course trajectories of behaviors and associated developmental outcomes in inner-city youth. Growth mixture modeling was used to classify antisocial behavior trajectories, which identified three distinct developmental trajectories of antisocial behavior: high starter, incremental, and steady. Understanding developmental trajectories of antisocial behaviors is important in that it informs prevention and intervention efforts, particularly for high-risk youth populations.
