A structural model for prediction of AIDS-relevant behavioral changes in young people was developed and evaluated by using full information maximum likelihood estimates obtained from LISREL VII computer program. Exogenous variables in the model are: socio-economic status, demographic status, and age. The model holds that these variables determine AIDS-relevant knowledge and attitudes, which in turn cause perception of personal susceptibility to harm. The latter variable causes AIDS-preventive behavioral changes. The model was tested on four independent samples, each consisting of N=200 young individuals. Six out of seven goodness-of-fit indices suggest acceptable fit of the model. Implications for AIDS-prevention programs are discussed.
