Abstract

The aim of this study is to reveal whether the risky behaviors of adolescents differ according to various socio-demographic variables they have. The research was planned as a relational survey research, one of the quantitative research methods. Among the non-probabilistic sampling methods, the convenient sampling method was chosen as the sampling method. For this purpose, a total of 366 students studying in all high schools in Erzincan province, Tercan district were reached. The students were provided with the socio-demographic information form prepared by the researcher, and the Adolescent Form of the Risky Behaviors Scale, whose validity and reliability were studied by Gençtanırım and Ergene (2014). The data obtained were analyzed with SPSS 22 Package Program. Arithmetic mean and standard deviation values were determined for the analysis of the data. In order to determine whether the obtained scores differed significantly according to the groups, Independent Samples T Test, One Way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) and Tukey test were used. The significance level was determined as p <0.05 in the statistical analysis. According to the findings, male students exhibit higher risk behaviors compared to female students, 11th and 12th grade students exhibit high level of risky behaviors compared to 9th and 10th grade students, students whose mothers died displayed high-risk behaviors compared to both students whose fathers died and students whose parents were living, students whose mothers are high school graduates exhibit higher levels of risky behavior compared to students whose mothers are secondary and primary school graduates, and also students whose mothers did not trained, that their risky behavior scores decrease significantly as their school success increases in adolescents, students living in metropolitan areas it was found that students living in provinces, districts, villages/towns exhibited high-level risky behaviors. On the other hand, it was found that adolescents' risky behaviors did not differ significantly according to the number of siblings, parents married/divorced status, father education level and economic level.
