The investigator will collect a third wave of data from over 230 White, rural, low- and middle-income youth. This information, alongside prior assessments, will provide a picture of development from middle childhood through early and middle adolescence. This project uses measures and theories from developmental and environmental psychology.
How does poverty affect youth development in rural areas? What physical and psychosocial factors in children’s homes and communities explain why some children do well while others do poorly?
