Economic Conditions at Birth Linked to Behavior in Teen Years
Date:12/31/2012

MONDAY, Dec. 31 (HealthDay News) -- Infants growing up in households struggling with chronic unemployment may face a higher risk for engaging in substance abuse and a range of other delinquent behaviors as adolescents, new research suggests.

The finding is reported in the Dec. 31 online issue of the journal Archives of General Psychiatry.

Such problems included smoking marijuana or cigarettes, drinking, getting arrested, getting involved with gangs, and engaging in petty or major theft, the study authors noted in a journal news release.
