Structural equation modeling of rural adolescent inhalant abuse across ethnic groups
MetadataShow full item record
This project aimed to increase understanding of inhalant abuse among ethnically diverse rural adolescents, an under-researched population when it comes to substance abuse (Pruitt, 2009). The present project used general findings about substance use from previous research reported in the literature, as well as findings specifically addressing inhalants, to test structural equation models of inhalant abuse for three major ethnic groups: African Americans, Mexican Americans and Whites. The sample consisted of survey responses from a total of approximately 17,000 rural adolescents, primarily from ...
