Legal socialization and profiles of pre-adolescents in São Paulo: a correspondence analysis
This article presents a descriptive and exploratory analysis based on the first wave results of the São Paulo Legal Socialization Study (SPLSS). The purpose of this study is to understand how early adolescents internalize laws and social norms. Early adolescents’ social backgrounds shape the formation of legitimacy and trust in authorities and democratic institutions. Thus, utilizing multiple correspondences analysis (MCA) we seek to identify associations among sociodemographic characteristics and variables such as victimization and trust in the legitimacy of police. We find two asymmetrically differentiated profiles regarding legitimacy.
