This introductory chapter describes the analytic framework used to guide and organize a Development Services Group (DSG) literature review on the relationship between macroeconomic conditions and youth violence, as well as the major conclusions of this review. During the 1990s, Brooks-Gunn and colleagues developed an analytic framework connecting macro-social conditions such as segregation and labor markets to individual developmental outcomes, including physical and mental health, personal efficacy, interpersonal relations, and criminal behavior. The analytic framework to be applied in this study adapts the Brooks-Gun et al. schema on a narrower scale, at the same time expanding the mediating domains linking macroeconomic conditions to youth violence to encompass the community and situational contexts of youth violence.
