Schwartz’s research appears in Omaha World-Herald
Findings from a study recently published in the Journal of Interpersonal Violence by Professor Joseph Schwartz and Kevin Beaver (Florida State University) were featured in the Omaha World-Herald on April 10th. In the study, Professor Schwartz and his colleague examined the link between television viewing and subsequent antisocial behavior. They found that while kids who watch more television are more likely to experience behavioral issues later in life, one does not cause the other; rather, genetics influences both practices. The study, which involved the analysis of nationally representative data from more than 90,000 K-12 students who were surveyed four times between 1994 through 2008, is one of the largest studies to date used to examine the correlation between television viewing and antisocial behavior.
