Özet

This research article examines relationships between health-promoting attitudes and behaviors of students in different urban, socioeconomic settings. A quantitative survey was carried out to compare attitudes and behaviors of Turkish adolescents in eighth-grade primary school. The survey results showed that socioeconomic status might be a predictor of student attitudes and behaviors and that poverty itself might serve as a measure adolescent health. There are positive and negative affects of socioeconomic status on student attitudes and behaviors, which require further investigation.
