The graph of youth involved in violence has been constantly moving upward. Anger is the drive or motive behind aggressive behavior and the subjective experience that accompanies aggressive impulses. The aim of the present study was to determine anger among adolescents and their perception on factors that influence their anger as well as the association between levels of anger with the socio demographic variables. A structured questionnaire on demographic variables and self reporting clinical anger scale (CAS) was administered among 300 subjects by using Stratified cluster sampling technique. Results shows out of 300, 188 (62.7%) had minimal clinical anger, 39 (13%) had mild level of anger, 41(13.7%) were in moderate level and 32(10.7%) had severe levels of clinical anger.Thus the investigation on adolescent anger levels, do warrant to facilitate the development and implementation of anger management programs at schools that would prevent and decrease violent behaviours in our society.
