Synopsis: Random effects logistic regression was used to examine racial differences in internalizing and externalizing problems of youth (n=5806) entering systems-of-care and to determine whether those racial differences vary for caregivers, clinicians and youth. Behavior problems were assessed with the Child Behavior Checklist, the Youth Self Report, and clinician diagnoses extracted from case records. There were significant race-by-rater interactions for African American and American Indian/Alaskan Native youth. The results and implications of the findings are discussed.
