  • Abstract

    These data are part of NACJD's Fast Track Release and are distributed as they were received from the data depositor. The files have been zipped by NACJD for release, but not checked or processed except for the removal of direct identifiers. Users should refer to the accompanying readme file for a brief description of the files available with this collection and consult the investigator(s) if further information is needed. The research purpose of this project was to advance the scientific understanding of children's exposure to family violence and children's adjustment. This research examined the prevalence of child exposure to psychological and physical Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) and parent-to-child aggression (PCA), proximal associations with child externalizing and internalizing behavior, social and scholastic competence in early childhood and adolescence, and the developmental timing and intergenerational transmission of exposure to IPV and PCA related to child externalizing behavior. The study also looked at child effortful control and positive parenting as risk and protective factors theorized to mediate associations between child exposure to family violence and later child adjustment. Secondary analyses were conducted using a prospective multigenerational data set involving community families from lower socioeconomic status backgrounds that comprise the Three Generational Study. The study collection includes 3 SPSS (.sav) files. The zip file includes CEV_3GS4_Cooccur_itemsB_12212018.sav (n= 283; 356 variables), CEV_3GS7_Cooccur_itemsB_12212018.sav (n= 184; 341 variables), CEV_OYS5_Cooccur_itemsC_12212018.sav (n= 206; 368 variables).
  • Abstract

    The research purpose of this project was to advance the scientific understanding of child exposure to interparent Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) and parent-to-child aggression (PCA) and children's adjustment through the utilization of a data set that combines (a) strong developmental and dyadic theory; (b) information on both fathers and mothers as well as boys and girls; (c) multimethod/informant and longitudinal assessment of family, couple, and child factors across childhood and adolescence; (d) psychological and physical IPV and PCA; and (e) cutting-edge data analytic techniques.
  • Methods

    Secondary analyses were conducted using a prospective multigeneration data set involving the children (N = 291, 51% girls) of the Oregon Youth Study men and the children's biological mothers (even if the couple has separated) from 3GS. At enrollment into the Oregon Youth Study in Grade 4 (74% participation rate), the men who were then boys were at risk for aggression (by virtue of living in neighborhoods with relatively high rates of juvenile delinquency) and from lower SES backgrounds. When the men were in adolescence ages 17 and 18 years, they were invited to participate in biannual couple sessions with a romantic partner (only two men brought in a same-sex partner). When the men became biological fathers (76%), the first two children of each mother/partner were invited to participate in 3GS.
  • Methods

    The data file CEV_3GS4_Cooccur_itemsB_12212018.sav (n= 283; 356 variables) contains variables from Wave 4 of the Three Generation Study. The data file CEV_3GS7_Cooccur_itemsB_12212018.sav (n= 184; 341 variables) contains variables from Wave 7 of the Three Generation Study. The data file CEV_OYS5_Cooccur_itemsC_12212018.sav (n= 206; 368 variables) contains variables from Wave 5 of the Oregon Youth Study.
  • Methods

    Presence of Common Scales: Oregon Youth Study scales when the Oregon Youth Study men who were then boys were ages 13-14 years: Conflict Tactics Scales (Straus, 1979); Child Unpleasant Event Schedule (Hoberman, 1984); Parent and Teacher Child Behavior Checklist (Achenbach and Edelbrock, 1983); Parent and Teacher Peer Involvement and Social Skills (Walker and McConnell, 1988). Three Generations Study scales when the offspring/children of the Oregon Youth Study men were age 5 years and ages 11-12 years: Conflict Tactics Scales (Straus, 1979); Parent-Child Conflict Tactics Scales (Straus et al., 1996); Child Behavior Checklist (Achenbach, 1991); Parent and Teacher Peer Involvement and Social Skills (Walker and MConnell, 1988).
  • Methods

    Response Rates: Participation for the Three Generational Study was 91% for children and 99% for parents.
