Youth cultures in Britain: the middle class take-over
This article discusses the character of Britain's youth cultures at the end of the 1980s using evidence from longitudinal studies of the Economic and Social Research Council's 16-19 Initiative carried out among representative samples from four parts of the UK. The females had the highest social contact scores and equalled the males' levels of overall leisure activity.
