Aggression in Boys and Girls in Relation to Their Residential Background
Keywords:Aggression, Residence, Gender
AbstractThe study was conducted to explore aggression in boys and girls in relation to their residential background. Purposive sampling technique was used and total 100 respondents (undergraduate student) constituted the sample of the study. They were selected from Rajshahi city and Shampur, Katakhali. They were equally divided into boys and girls. Each group was again equally divided into urban and rural residential background. The Bengali version of the Measure of Aggressive Behavior (Rahman, 2003) which was originally developed by Buss and Perry (1992) was used for the collection of data. The two-way ANOVA was used to analyze the results (as the study resembled with a 2×2 factorial design consisting of two levels of gender and two levels of residential background). The result revealed the significant effect of gender and residential background on aggression. Boys were found significantly more aggressive than girls. Similarly, respondents of rural areas were found significantly more aggressive than the respondents of urban areas.
