The literature on adolescent drug dealing is very limited. Using data from "A Cross-National Study of the Youth Drug-Violence Nexus," this paper will examine the correlates of adolescent drug dealing. It will look at how drug dealing varies by age, race, and gender. We will also consider how drug dealing is related to drug use, violent behavior and differences in perceptions between drug dealers and non-drug dealers.
