Longitudinal Heterogeneity in Handgun-Carrying Behavior Among Urban American Youth: Intervention Priorities at Different Life Stages

Conducted by Beidi Dong, Sara F. Jacoby, Christopher N. Morrison, and Douglas J. Wiebe, all of whom are PISC members, this paper aimed to determine patterns of handgun-carrying behavior among urban American youth and identify modifiable risk factors that could be targeted in anti-violence policies. Through the use of multinomial logistic regression analyses, the study concluded that there are multiple profiles of young adults who carry handguns, and that interventions should have distinct targets that address different patterns of handgun-carrying behavior at different stages of adolescence.
