The relationship of demographic variables to teacher reports of behavior problems in six-to-eight-year-olds was examined. Contrary to previous research findings associating teacher-reported problems with poverty and gender, multivariate analyses found significant associations only for ethnicity and caretakers' marital status. Implications for research on the impact of demographic factors on children's behavior problems and school performance are discussed.
