ABSTRACT

Adolescence as a transitional stage implies several changes and challenges demanding psycho-social adjustment that could be beyond one’s coping for some adolescents who end up developing dysfunctional adaptive behaviour such as aggression. The present study aimed at investigating the risk factors of adolescent aggression. A total of 297 respondents constituted the sample of the study. Among them, 63 (21.21%) adolescents were male and 234 (78.78%) were female. A survey design was used. The descriptive statistics used for analysis of demographic variables were frequency and percentage. Chi Square test and Fishers exact test were used to find the risk factors of Aggression. The findings of the present study show a statistical significant association between gender and socio-economic status on adolescent aggression.
