Presents secondary analysis of a five-year project (VCU-YVPC) that collected data on youth violence and related risk factors as part of an evaluation of violence prevention efforts. The VCU-YVPC project was conducted in three middle schools in Richmond, Virginia. In addition to the VCU-YVPC sample, a second dataset, collected from the Multi-site Violence Prevention Program (MVPP), was also used for the project, specifically to address questions regarding measurement. This included data from students recruited from 37 schools in four regions in the U.S. across two cohorts.
