Abstract


The objective of present investigation was to study conduct disorder in school children and also
to make a comparative analysis of conduct disorder between male-female and urban-rural school
children. For this 200 male and 200 female school children were taken as a sample from four
schools situated in Patna and Siwan district. The age range of samples was from 7 to 14 years.
The psychopathology measurement schedule developed by Malhotra Savita was administered.
Two hypothesis were formulated for verification : (i) Urban school children will differ significantly
from rural school children on the measure of conduct disorder. (ii) Male and Female school
children will differ significantly on the measure of conduct disorder .The obtained data were
statistically analyzed with suitable parametric and nonparametric statistical techniques. The
obtained results showed that (i) Urban and rural school children differed significantly with each
other on the measure of conduct disorder. (ii) There is significant difference between male and
female school children on the measure of conduct disorder. Both hypothesis were accepted and
