Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $37,727)

This award will provide the funding for The University of Cincinnati to develop a study to acquire a greater understanding of the development of adolescent antisocial behavior using data from the Project on Human Development in Chicago Neighborhoods (PHDCN). Two specific objectives fall under this overall goal: (1) describe trajectories of substance use and delinquency across the adolescent and (2) assess important individual and social influences available in the PHDCN in terms of impact on the initial level and continuance of antisocial behavior. The University of Cincinnati will oversee the evaluation, process documentation, and dissemination activities. ca/ncf
