We investigated the antecedents of self-esteem in a sample of 398 Nepalese secondary school students by correlating possible antecedent variables with scores on facets of self-esteem from an instrument based on the Shavelson, Hubner, and Stanton model of self-esteem. Family structural and status variables showed weak relationships with self-esteem, whereas family psychological variables showed significant relationships with the family facet of self-esteem and with global self-esteem. However, previous school grade was, overall, the strongest predictor of self-esteem.
