Relative Degree of Male and Female Conformity to Delinquent Peer Influence Revisited

Jeff Ackerman, The Pennsylvania State University

ABSTRACT
This project examines the relative conformity of female and male adolescents to delinquent peer pressure. While prior researchers, especially those using experimental strategies, have discussed this topic previously, the current research goes beyond prior strategies by examining not only which gender conforms more, but also whether same-gender or cross-gender peer influences are stronger.
