"Violent Victimization: An Examination of Neighborhood Perception, Religiosity, and Risk-Taking Attitudes using the National Longitudinal Study of Youth"

AASD Brown Bag with Christopher St. Vil Ph.D. Previous research suggests that religiosity has an indirect effect on violent victimization among adolescents. Few studies, however, have examined the role of religiosity and victimization among young and older adults. To address this gap we use data from the National Longitudinal Study of Youth Young Adult survey to examine the role of religiosity, neighborhood perception, and risk-taking attitudes on the violent victimization of adolescent, young adult and adult men and women. Our findings lend support to lifestyle theory explanations of violent victimization and the implications of this research for social policy and practice are discussed. {Will appear in FYI on Apr 14, 2014
