Abstract

This study investigated the influence of demographic variables on social adjustment of in-school adolescents in Ibadan Metropolis of Southwest Nigeria with a sample of 210 participants randomly selected from four secondary schools. A self-developed instrument duly validated by experts in Science Education and Counselling Psychology titled: Adolescent Social Adjustment Scale (ASAS) was used to obtain information from the participants. Using multiple regression and t-test statistics for data analysis, the study revealed significant composite influence of demographic variables on in-school adolescents' social adjustment. The study also revealed minimal influence of school type and significant effect of religion on in-school adolescents' social adjustment. Finally, the study revealed no significant gender difference on the influence of demographic variables on in-school adolescents' social adjustment. The study recommended counselling services to ensure appropriate social adjustment among Nigerian in-school adolescents.
