Guttmannova and Colleagues Explore the Effects of Neighborhoods on Asian American Adolescent
Posted: 6/3/2022 (CSDE in the News)
CSDE Affiliate Katarina Guttmannova with several co-authors recently published new research on Asian-American Adolescents in the Journal of Youth and Adolescence. This study examines the longitudinal association between cumulative neighborhood risk and internalizing behavior, and the moderating role of sex and co-ethnic density using an Asian American subsample of a longitudinal panel study over a span of 6 years. The authors find no evidence of moderation by co-ethnic density or sex, indicating that reducing neighborhood disadvantage may be a promising preventive measure to address mental health problems for both sexes of Asian American adolescents.
